Canadian North completed another successful Toy Drive this past holiday season with deliveries made to children in the Hamlets of Kimmirut, Clyde River, and Taloyoak in Nunavut. As the fourth year of this initiative, Canadian North staff and partners, including Canada Goose and Mastermind Toys in Ottawa and Edmonton, raised over $17,000, with funds going towards purchasing new toys for the children.
“Not only is this event so important to the children of these communities, but it also creates an opportunity for our employees to give back,” says Shelly De Caria, Senior Director, Sales & Community Investments. “Many of the toys offered by Mastermind Toys are not available in our communities, which makes this even more special for the kids.”
“The Toy Drive reminds us of our mission to meaningfully improve the lives of the communities we serve,” says Chris Avery, Canadian North President and CEO. “Each year our hope for the Toy Drive is to show our communities that we care and to show our staff that their support makes a direct impact to these kids.”
