It's often said the Tri-Cities is a caring community, and we'll see evidence of that tomorrow (Thursday), as 500 residents don Wear a Bear for SHARE pins to raise money for the organization's Christmas toy and food hamper program. A first for SHARE, the response to this campaign has been so great there are already plans to expand it next year.
Need more evidence that Tri-Cities residents care? Check out our haunted house list on Page 16. Besides offering Halloween fun, the organizers of all four of our featured homes are collecting donations, three for Variety - The Children's Charity, and one for the Coquitlam Animal Shelter.
It's true that sometimes the pages of this newspaper are filled with information about scams and crimes and all the other bad things that happen in every corner of the world.
But take a closer look and you'll see evidence that the heart of this community is big, and if you want to help others, there's no shortage of ways to get involved.
