Play boxes come to Vernon, BC

The North Okanagan Optimist Club in Vernon, British Columbia has developed a year-round approach to its popular Unplug and Play program. In addition to its annual city-wide awareness campaign held in late April each year, it has also developed Unplug and Play boxes. The boxes, filled with balls, hula hoops, and other children's toys, have been placed around town. They ask for help from neighborhood volunteers to padlock the boxes at night and keep the club aware if new supplies are needed.

What an awesome way to raise awareness for the Optimist Club and its mission: Bringing out the best in youth, community and you.
