BC Liquor stores across the province are encouraging customers to give to those less fortunate this holiday season by participating in the 27th annual Share-A-Bear program.
Donna Barnett, MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin gives us some of the details.
“You can buy a bear for $12.50 and you choose one bear to take home while it’s twin is donated to a shelter, hospital, or worthwhile charity.”
Barnett says that local charities across the Cariboo include the RCMP detachments, hospitals, fire-halls, and food banks.
In 2015 more than 25,000 bears were donated across the province of BC.
