Santa’s helpers head­ing to Queen’s Park Mon­day

Penticton Herald - - OKANAGAN-SIMILKAMEEN -

The “elves” of Ed­ina Chap­ter No. 33 Or­der of the Easter Star are busy pre­par­ing for their sev­enth an­nual Santa Store at Queen’s Park El­e­men­tary School on Mon­day.

Mem­bers and friends of the Or­der do­nate gen­tly used items as suit­able gifts the chil­dren will pur­chase for fam­ily mem­bers — even their pets.

The elves sort and price — from 25 cents to $1 — each item for the store. And when the store opens, they help kids pick the per­fect gifts, which are then wrapped for them to take home and place un­der the tree.

The event is a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for the kids and pro­ceeds help sup­port the Or­der’s an­nual $500 schol­ar­ship for a grad­u­ate of Pen­tic­ton Sec­ondary School.

Spe­cial to the Her­ald

Vol­un­teers are busy pre­par­ing for the an­nual Santa Store this Mon­day at Queen’s Park El­e­men­tary.
