Since 2016, a caring local family who wishes to remain anonymous, has donated money, purchased items and decorated hampers for families in need in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area. The tradition continued this year along with donations from RCMP staff, Restorative Justice, Police Based Victim Services, Sources Oceanside Resource Centre, Red Apple, Boston Pizza, Thrifty Foods and Save-On-Foods.

This caring tradition of helping community members during the holidays has brought joy and happiness to many families over the years and everyone at the Oceanside RCMP thanks the local organizing family, agencies and business for their generosity and thoughtfulness in their support of local families in need, says Sergeant Shane Worth, Operations Support NCO at Oceanside RCMP.
