Alongside our Food Drive, we also ran a Toy Drive – which you also helped turn into a big success! For the last month, we’ve placed donation boxes at each of our four downtown CAFE dispensary locations – and you all helped us reach our toy donation goals. We managed to drop off over 500 toys for kids that need them this holiday season!
Thank you all for bringing your new, unwrapped toys to our stores. We collected these steadily for the last few weeks, and then matched your donations by picking up a bunch of toys ourselves. As well, our friends over at Leafythings joined in the efforts with their own donations, and by helping us deliver the toys right to where they are needed the most. We gathered up all the toys and dropped them off to our local Sistering drop-in shelter, and to Toy Mountain at the Toronto Eaton Centre.
We are extremely appreciative of your donations, and the support of our community! We know that kids’ eyes light up seeing presents under the tree, and we wanted to ensure that as many kids as possible should have something fun to unwrap this holiday season.
