A mountain of toys will be created at Guildford Town Centre during a two-day event this week.
The annual “Toy Mountain” drive encourages shoppers to drop off new, unwrapped toys for kids on Thursday and Friday (Dec. 6-7), in support of The Salvation Army efforts at Christmas.
Those who drop off a donation between 5:30 and 10 a.m. will receive an Original Sunny Start breakfast cooked by Triple O’s restaurant.
“We are so pleased to partner with Bell Media for this wonderful event,” said Mike Leland, a public relations rep with The Salvation Army.
“Sadly, the cost of living today in B.C. means many parents are forced to choose between paying bills or giving their children presents. Thanks to Toy Mountain, parents don’t have to make that difficult choice, and thousands of children get to have their magical moment during the holiday season.”
Personalties from a number of local TV and radio stations will be broadcasting from the mall during the drive, sponsored by Alpine Credits and Surrey Honda.
