Coins for kids

It’s not quite pennies from heaven – no more Canadian one-cent coin – but one-year-old Evan Williams delights in a little money shower to promote this year’s Coins For Kids. You may remember the Mirror’s annual Pennies For Presents fundraiser; this is the same thing just with a new name. Drop off your coins at the Mirror office, 104-250 Dogwood St., by Friday, Dec. 20. If you drop off rolled coins, we’ll enter your name in a raffle to win a $200 gift basket from Quality Foods. All funds raised through Coins For Kids will be donated to the Knights of Columbus Christmas Hamper Fund.  - Paul Rudan/The Mirror
