Quesnel Vintage Car Club members donate toys to RCMP Victim Services

Club members try to collect enough toys to make a donation each Christmas

The Quesnel chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada has been donated stuff animals to RCMP Victim Services every year around Christmas time for about 11 years.

This year, club member Don McClure presented two large garbage bags filled with everything from stuffed unicorns and minions to moose and teddy bears to Cindy Osip from RCMP Victim Services for local families.

McClure says the toys are collected throughout the year, as members will bring a teddy bear with them to different outings.

“I just want to say again my sincerest thanks to Don and the club,” said Osip. “These bring a lot of smiles.”
