HASBRO CANADA bringing Holiday Cheer to Montreal Children's Hospital

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.
