Parent Link giveaway event to be held November 29 and 30

give away event

Parent Link Family Centre (located in the Ranchland Mall) is currently accepting donations for the children's clothing, book and toy give away which is scheduled to happen in Ranchland Mall  on Friday, November 29 from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm, and Saturday, November 30 from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.

You can drop off clean gently used items at Parent Link during their regular hours of operation.

"It's been amazing," said Parent Link representative Diane Bowen-Oczkowski.  "People have been donating really wonderful items."

The give away event is targeted for children from newborns to 5 years old.  Over 16 volunteers have been helping with the project.  The Parent Link Center has held this event twice a year  for the last 4 years.  More than 200 people attended the last one.  A cash donation box will be available for those who would like to contribute monetarily but Oczkowski would like to let people know it is not a sale or an exchange,  so if you have nothing to bring you can still collect items you need or want.

Parent Link Family Centre and Brighter Futures are working together to host the event.
