Oceanside RCMP delivered Christmas hampers to nine single parent families, including 21 children, in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area this year.

The hampers, full of toys, clothing, food and gift cards, were delivered Dec. 22 by RCMP officers and Victim Services and Restorative Justice staff, according to a media release by Sgt. Chris Manseau, division media relations officer for BC RCMP.

Since 2016, a local family, who wish to remain anonymous, has donated money, purchased items and decorated hampers for families in need in the 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,” said Sgt. Shane Worth, operations support NCO for Oceanside RCMP.
