Campbell River Sears and the John Howard Society of North Island have teamed up for its second annual Tree of Wishes Gift Giving Campaign.

The campaign offers generous community members a chance to purchase gifts for over 100 children from homes that are struggling financially this year.

Sears Christmas Wish tree still has over 50 children’s wishes from kids aged one year old to 16 waiting on the tree which need to be purchased by Saturday at the latest.  The hopeful boys and girls are all participants in the John Howard Society’s programs for vulnerable children and youth.

The gifts selected range from teddy bears to clothing, and without these gifts, these kids won’t have a Christmas.

The children’s wishes are all attached to the tree waiting for a donor to pick them  off and purchase the gift.

Help make kids wishes come true this Christmas by getting to Sears at 1300 Homewood Road by Saturday at noon.
