'Random Acts of Costuming' held successful toy drive, look to continue

More toys for kids ward

This week is knowns as Random Acts of Kindness and what better time for the Random Acts of Costuming to deliver toys to the children at Kelowna General Hospital.

Scott Burke and his superhero team held a successful fundraiser after they had to stop handing out toys while dressed up in costumes due to COVID-19.

Early this month, the crew asked community members to drop off wrapped toys at Chibi's Anime Goods and Collectibles in Kelowna and Home Hardware West Kelowna to give to kids in need.

On Feb. 12, Burke was able to donate around $1,000 worth of toys to the children's ward at KGH.
With the success, they are continuing the collection of toys until Mar. 1.

Those interested can leave their donations at the Kelowna ReStore or email [email protected].

They're still encouraging local donations and donors to buy and support local.

He also reached out to nurses at KGH, who have requested some items for the children: playing cards, stress balls for teens, dolls or action figures, small packed toys and coffee pods for parents.
