Some North Okanagan families will find the gift of science under the tree this year.
The Okanagan Science Centre and Kal Tire are providing 20, one-year memberships to families in need who might not otherwise be able to fully enjoy the science centre.
Memberships will be distributed by the Salvation Army through their Christmas hampers.
Executive Director Jim Swingle said at the recent International Science Centre and Science Museum Day event, Kal Tire set up a by-donation barbecue in front of the building.
Kal Tire donated all proceeds from the barbecue to the science centre, funding 10 family memberships. The Okanagan Science Centre matched the contribution, making for 20 family memberships to be given out.
