Sale supports Cops for Kids

Penticton Cops For Kids riders are having a fundraiser yard sale on Saturday in the parking lot of Parkway School.

With a goal of raising $6,000, Penticton RCMP members Cpl. Brian Burke, Const. Brad Caruso and Const. Tim Wood are asking people to donate items to the event or make a cash donation.

Those wanting to donate items can drop them off at the Penticton RCMP detachment or leave a message and the items can be picked up. Tim Hortons will be on site on Saturday at the school  providing cookies for sale to help the riders meet their financial goal.

Cops For Kids charity recently donated an adult tricycle to Joshua Castle of Penticton. He was born in Liberia, West Africa and adopted to a family in Canada. Castle, 12, has autism and difficulty balancing on a regular two-wheel bicycle. Cops For Kids was able to help purchase the tricycle so he can ride safely and the Bike Barn donated a complementary bike tune-up, helmet and lock.

The Parkway School parent advisory committee is also hosting a bottle drive on Saturday in the school parking lot during the yard sale from 8 a.m. to noon in an effort to help the school.
