Cops for Kids riders will be rolling into the Parkway Elementary School parking lot to raise money with a yard sale for children this Saturday.
They have already helped Joshua Castle of Penticton. Colleen Castle asked for a grant to help 12-year-old Joshua. He was born in Liberia and adopted and brought to Canada. Joshua has autism and requires an adult-sized tricycle due to balance issues. Cops for Kids got him his new wheels.
On May 4 the RCMP will be making more attempts to raise cash for local children. Those looking to donate items for this event can drop them off at the Penticton RCMP detachment on Main Street or leave a message and items can be picked up. Cash donations can also be left at the May 4 event.
All monies raised at the yard sale will be used for three Penticton RCMP officers who will be participating in the Cops for Kids ride this year. The goal is $6,000.
To learn more about the program go to www.copsforkids.org. Donations can also be made through the website.
