The season of giving continues as we get closer to Christmas.
Central Okanagan Search and Rescue has teamed up with the University of British Columbia Okanagan and the Ellison Fire Department for a food and toy drive at the UBCO campus on Saturday.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lower parking lot (H Lot) off Innovation Drive.
Organizers tell Castanet this will be a no-contact event.
"We ask that you follow the directional signs and either drop your items off in the apple box provided or ask us to come to your vehicle where volunteers in full personal protective equipment will happily take them," says COSAR search manager Duane Tresnich.
Everyone is asked to please bring nonperishable food, children’s toys or pet food.
