Help make the holidays merry for Campbell River’s Second Chance clients

Second Chance Recovery Society needs your help to make the holidays merry and bright for its clients this Christmas.

You can donate a gift or cash to the men’s recovery house at 647 Birch Street, or contact them at 250-830-1103 or second.chance.recovery@gmail.com. to arrange for pick up. The deadline for donations is Friday, Dec. 14.

Suggested gift items include: new underwear, shirts, track or sleep pants, hoodies, socks, razors, deodorant, shaving cream, shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, slippers, wallets, coffee shop and fast food restaurant gift cards, gum, nail clippers, chocolate, travel coffee mugs, back packs, mini flashlights, crossword/find a word/Sudoku books and pocket calendars/daytimers. Contributors are asked to avoid mouthwash or Axe or Irish Spring products, or size small clothing.

Since 1990, Second Chance has been helping males 19 and older end their addictions to alcohol and drugs. In the past year they have helped more than 130 men with their recovery. Christmas is a difficult time for many of their clients because they are separated from family and friends. And for many of the men, the holiday season also brings up painful memories of past trauma.

Help make it a safe and festive season for Second Chance clients with your donation.
