Auxiliary seeks storage space

Aquarius group appealing for help after garages storing Christmas sale items filled up.

Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Aquarius group leader Marilyn Van Iderstine organizes some of the Christmas items the group has collected ahead of their annual sale in November.

The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society’s Aquarius group is appealing for help from the community as they face a lack of storage space for Christmas Sale items.

Existing garages the group uses to store items for the sale – set for Nov. 27 and 28 at White Rock Elks Hall – have been full since June, according to group leader Marilyn Van Iderstine.

Renting a storage locker, Van Iderstine said, would eat up most of the sale’s profits, which go towards Peace Arch Hospital.

Any local residents who are willing to act as a ‘storage sponsor’ and donate some garage or shed space can contact Van Iderstine at 604-535-1688.
