A lot sure has happened since last years show. As you may have noticed, our website has been under construction. We are always striving to bring you the best Toy Drive experience, whether its online or at our event.
I wanted to take a moment to thank everybody who voted for Mark.
We just received word that he won the Toronto Urban Heroes award.
Once again it just goes to show that good things can happen when the community rallies behind a common goal. (This time that goal was making sure that this man was recognized for all his good work and his huge heart)
Congratulations Mr. Caruana
We would like to thank Monica and the rest of the folks at Boston Pizza (The Scarborough Town Centre location) for going above and beyond in helping us help kids.
Mom and I picked up a bunch of stuffed bears from her fellow Royal Canadian Legion branch 11 member Rose Mooney.
We are extremely excited to say that we have a whole whack of new sponsors this year, and our family of volunteers continues to grow exponentially.
Our team of Super heroes have already started affirming their presence. We already have the incomparable clown prince of crime That Joker Guy, Spiderman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Dr. Strange, The Flash, Groot, and of course one of the fan favourites, and our longest cosplaying member Wolverine. More to be announced in the months to come.
This year, the venue has changed. Our event will be held at The Newfoundlander Tavern, located at 472 Danforth Road. (The corner of Birchmount Avenue & Danforth Road)
It is literally just across the street from where we were last year. (Check out our map page)
Our Cookie Lady will be back at her station providing not only smiles a plenty, but many, many, many tasty treats for the kids to decorate and devour.
The incredibly gifted Arnold Trinidad of Spent Pencils will be donating his time, and talent once again as he takes as many requests as possible in the 2 hours that our show runs.
Our number of pre-show drop box locations is growing as well. Every year there are more people with the same goal as ours. And that is to see that no child goes without at Christmas time.
We believe that regardless of gender, religious belief, or ethnic background, every child, should have a toy. We are now in our 14th year still trying to make sure we can help as many children as possible. We've gone from a few friends telling a few friends, to having filled the equivalent of the Sky Dome 5 times.
Thanks for stopping by. Keep checking back as there are all kinds of exciting new things going on this year.
