Hamilton, ON-On December 13, 2011 two hundred excited children walked into a room packed with toys for all ages. Each child carefully-yet quickly-scanned the room looking for that special toy to take home. Each successful ‘toy hunt’ ended with giggles, smiles and laughter. For many of these children this gift is the most significant gift they will receive.
This year the ‘YWCA Hamilton Holiday Toy Drive’ was generously supported by the Christmas Tree of Hope program through local radio station CHML and Y108. This essential toy drive is held annually for children utilizing YWCA’s Supervised Access Program (SAP) and child care programs.
“We are so pleased to receive toys from the CHML/Y108 Christmas Tree of Hope. This allows us to give hope to families struggling this holiday season by having a direct impact on the children in our community,” said Denise Doyle CEO YWCA Hamilton, “YWCA Hamilton is grateful to CHML/Y108 and the community for their support for families in Hamilton”.
