A number of community leaders visited the SOS Toy Shop prior to it opening up for local families in-need this year. The new Mayors both attended a Toy Shop tour, as well as councillors from City of Parksville and Town of Qualicum Beach. We were also very pleased to host Qualicum First Nations Chief Michael Recalma and Tamara Rooke representing Michelle Stilwell, MLA Parksville-Qualicum. MP Gord Johns also had a tour of the Toy Shop, as well as the Thrift Shop and Parksville Community Services Centre. All attendees were very impressed with the Toy Shop, and all the community support it takes to stock it up so beautifully for our families in-need. It was nice to see some new faces, along with those who have come to visit the Toy Shop before.
