Toy Drive a Big Success

    Toy drive a big success


    I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all my fellow Miltonians and area residents neighbouring our beautiful community for their generosity in making Troy’s (Diner) Toy Drive an overwhelming success.

    It was due to their donations and the assistance of sponsors that the toy drive was able to take in more than $30,000 worth of toys.

    The entire atmosphere during the campaign wrap-up was truly special. For those who were in attendance, they know exactly what I mean. It was such a magical feeling and the true spirit of the season could be felt throughout the entire building.

    Because there were so many toys donated, it allowed us the chance to make a donation delivery to Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children in addition to the local Salvation Army.

    My father and I were so honoured to be given the opportunity to visit some of the patients, and I was amused by how excited the children were to have their pictures taken with our championship belt. However, it was the children that were the true champs in our eyes.

    In closing, I would like to offer my sincere thanks to my dear friend Troy Newton for allowing both my father and me the opportunity to participate in such a noble cause. There’s nothing more gratifying than bringing a smile to a child’s face.

    Here’s wishing everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful 2010.
