Adventure Hotel holds second annual Community Breakfast and Toy Drive

Bring a toy on Sunday and eat your fill, for free

The Adventure Hotel will be offering a free breakfast on Sunday, Nov. 25 from 8 a.m. to noon.

All you have to do to earn it is bring an unwrapped toy, a children’s book, or a Nelson Food Cupboard donation for a child at Christmas.

It’s the hotel’s second annual Community Breakfast and Toy Drive.

“We want some local children who are less privileged to have a Christmas that they deserve,” says general manager Rob Little. “There’s no catch to it other than that. We have had a great business year and we want to give back.”

Last year, 400 people attended and brought 800 gifts plus $1,000 in donations.

“Our chef puts on an incredible breakfast,” Little says, “and we don’t spare any cost: bacon, sausage, eggs Benedict, hash browns, everything.”

For Adventure Hotel employees who want to donate their wage that day, Little says the hotel will match the donation.

The mayor and several councillors, the police chief, and the fire chief will all be there, along with a children’s choir. An appearance by Santa is rumoured.
