Hold it… before you gas up, consider this

Local Lions club will pump gas this weekend at Benson Oil Plus - for the benefit of special needs kids.

Check your fuel and if there’s any way you can hold off a top up until this weekend… please consider it.

Head for Benson Oil Plus at 975 Columbia Avenue this Saturday or Sunday and go for it!

It’s the Selkirk Lions Club’s Annual “Pump for the Kids” fundraiser and two cents per litre will be donated by Benson Oil Plus to the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities, and Easter Seals Services.

Last year the society assisted more than 35,000 special-needs children in B.C. through programs such as Easter Seal houses, camps and buses, patient-care grants and laser skin-care centres.

Lions members are committed in their desire to help children with disabilities master new skills and achieve greater independence. Their success in raising funds for the children is a direct result of the generous support they receive annually from businesses and residents in our community.
