Toy sale to assist agency’s efforts to help Uganda

Okanagan College students will offer an opportunity for Christmas shoppers to get an early start on their gift buying and help the less fortunate at the same time.

The ISEE Solutions Twoonie Toy Sale will take place Sunday, Nov. 18, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., under the atrium of the Centre for Learning on the Kelowna campus.

Unwanted or under-used toys can be dropped off at the college on Saturday, Nov.1, 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Volunteers from SIFE. (Students in Free Enterprise) and ISEE Solutions Society will be on hand to collect  gently-used donated toys, and get them sorted for the sale the next day.

All the proceeds from the sale will go to funding ISEE Solutions work in Uganda.

ISEE Solutions is a Kelowna-based non-profit society whose mandate is to invest in sustainability, education and empowerment programs in the African country.

The non-denominational society is newly incorporated in 2012 but founder Erika van Oyen has been travelling to Uganda for humanitarian aid and educational development purposes since 2007.
