The News is close to raising it's goal of $1,000 for the Pennies for Presents campaign and it needs Alberni's residents' help to meet it.

News publisher Theresa Bird

This is the last week for people to bring in their coins for the Alberni Valley News’ Pennies for Presents campaign.

We’re so close to our $1,000 goal, and we’d love to surpass that. All donations will be going to the Port Alberni Toy Run this year. People have until the end of the day on Saturday, Dec. 17 to drop off your pennies.

This is the first year that we have joined in the Pennies for Presents campaign, a Black Press initiative.

The News office is open until 5 p.m. on Friday at 4656 Margaret St., next to Big Pig’s Subs. Other drop-off locations include the Bank of Montreal, C2 Salon in Adelaide Plaza (Johnston and Adelaide), Boston Pizza, Alberni Colour Corner (10th Avenue and Roger Street), Nature’s Elements (Gertrude Street) and D.A.S.T. Welding.
