MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 10, 2019 /CNW/ - Red Apple® stores and The Bargain! Shop® are spreading holiday cheer after another successful Together We Care™ Toy Drive. This year's annual Toy Drive collected $667,127 in toys for children in need across Canada. Customers across the country generously donated toys during the 3-week campaign helping make Christmas brighter for children in their communities.
The Toy Drive wrapped up on December 7 with an amazing Fill A Sleigh Day. Stores hosted a day of fun-filled activities including visits from the local fire and police departments to help fill Santa's Sleigh with toys. As part of the Together We Care™ program, Red Apple Stores Inc donated 10% of all toy sales from that day.
"This marks our third-year hosting Fill A Sleigh Day across Canada and we are so thankful for the generous donations our Customers have made this year," says Clinton Wolff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Apple Stores Inc. "It was amazing seeing the toys piling up! A big thank you goes out to our Customers for helping to support our communities and coming together to help make it a magical Christmas for children."
Once again communities showed their spirit of giving in support of the annual Toy Drive which will help bring joy and put a smile on many children's faces on Christmas morning. Thank you to everyone who generously opened their hearts and contributed this holiday season.
