Delivering the Wonder of Christmas to Children in Need
Toronto, ON – A huge collection of toys began to fill the front window of Sutton Group - Realty Systems Inc. in the weeks leading up to Christmas. As an official drop off location for the 52nd Annual CP24 Chum Christmas Wish Campaign, this Sutton office gathered donations from generous clients, REALTORS®, staff and the general public. By the time the charity’s truck arrived, there were countless gifts destined for children of low-income, Toronto-area families along with financial contributions that will provide year-round, social services.
"We love our community, and no child should miss out on the magic of the holiday season,” says Maryann Semen, Broker of Record.
Staff decorated a large donation box to place next to the Christmas tree in the front window, then the team promoted the toy drive in person and through social media. They encouraged friends and clients to drop off new toys, or text WISH to 30333 to make a monetary donation.
“We held our campaign open until the last minute to accept toy donations for children of all ages,” notes Maryann. “From baby bath toys, to Tickle-me Elmos, challenging Lego sets, and full-size play houses, no age group was left out by the time the donation truck arrived on Friday, December 21st."
All the gifts were distributed to families in the Greater Toronto Area. The CP24 Chum Christmas Wish Campaign was established in 1966 and has become one of largest toy drives in Canada. In addition to toys, financial contributions from corporate sponsors and the public help to fund important social services for those in need.
