MONTREAL, Dec. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Hasbro Canada is donating $15,000 worth
of Toys & Games to the Montreal Children's Hospital after hearing the
hospital's appeal for help earlier this week. This donation is intended
to help alleviate much of the shortfall in toy donations that the
hospital has experienced this Holiday season.
"We are proud to support the Montreal Children's Hospital's need for
toys," said Michael Hogg, President for Hasbro Canada. "We hope that
our donation will not only help fill up the hospital's storage room,
but ultimately bring comfort and joy to the children in the hospital
this Holiday Season."
Hasbro Canada will be making their donation on Friday December 17th, just in time for the staff to sort and wrap their gifts for Santa and
his elves to distribute on Christmas morning.
