SOS is committed to enhancing our residents’ quality of life, including promoting healthy social lives and interpersonal connections.

Our events combat isolation, educate, inspire and help raise awareness of the resources available at SOS.

We also want to keep our pulse on the community, by listening to our residents’ thoughts, suggestions and interests.

Come behold a team horses and their riders, dressed in Christmas attire, riding through the streets of Parksville collecting toys for children on Sunday, Nov. 20. Members of the Silver Spur Riding Club leave Ballenas Secondary School at 12:10 and head east on Morrison Ave, turn right on McMillan St. and end up at the SOS Child, Youth & Family Centre in Parksville (245 West Hirst Ave) at approx 12:30. 

Spectators are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to put in riders saddlebags and wagons along the way. The toys help fill the SOS Toy Shop, where low income parents and grandparents get to shop for free for their children.
