Kootenay Kids Society recently received six dozen adorable stuffed panda bears from the Nelson Government Liquor Store as part of their annual ‘Share a Bear’ campaign. 

All of these cuddly bears will be going to forever homes in the Nelson area to be hugged & enjoyed by dozens of children this Christmas.

Thank you to all of the wonderfully generous people in our communities that
have chosen to purchase these bears and put a smile on a lot of children’s
faces this Christmas. 

Also, many thanks to the Nelson Liquor Store staff for picking Kootenay Kids Society as a welcoming recipient of these beautiful little bears.

Kootenay Kids Society has been providing supports & services in the Nelson
area for over 25 years and continues to make a difference in the lives of
children and their families. 

Kootenay Kids Society is a non-profit agency that relies on government funding, grants, and donations to maintain our programming and meet the needs of local families. 

Your donation of $25 or more is eligible for a tax deductible/charitable donation receipt and will go a long way in helping local families.
