The Kootenay Kids Society received the bears from the Nelson Government Liquor Store with plans to distribute them prior to Christmas.

The non-profit agency relies on government funding, grants, and donations to maintain their programming and meet the needs of local families. Donations of $25 or more is eligible for a tax deductible-charitable donation receipt and will go a long way in helping local families.
