In Ontario, the Ancaster West store collected 885 plush toys! Of those toys, 500 went to @LansdowneChildrensCentre for their annual Christmas Party where they were given to children at the facility and their families. The centre offers rehab, respite and recreation services for children and youth with special physical, communication and developmental needs. The other 385 toys went to the @hamitlonbulldogs hockey team for their annual toy toss!
Best of all 10 per cent of the sale for each plush toy went to @PetSmartCharities of Canada. Those donations will be used to fund animal-assisted therapy programs at places like SickKids Hospital in Toronto and BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.
