Sears Tree of Wishes helps children in KidStart

For customers and associates of Campbell River Sears, the greatest gift of all this holiday season is the joy of giving.

Sears kicked off its first annual Tree of Wishes Gift Giving Campaign this year, offering generous community members the opportunity to purchase gifts for children from homes that are struggling financially. Sears partnered with The John Howard Society of North Island’s KidStart Mentoring Program, and 26 children’s wishes will come true in just a few weeks.

“This will be the happiest Christmas my kids have had in years,” said Sara, a single mom of three boys.

KidStart is a one-to-one mentoring program and connects caring adults with children (ages 6-18) for three hours of fun per week. Call KidStart Coordinator Tara Jordan at 250-286-0611 if you would like to help by sponsoring a child, making a donation, or becoming a mentor this Christmas.
