Mohawk College to open North Pole branch plant for 450 Hamilton children in need

HAMILTON (Dec. 1, 2014) -- Four hundred and fifty children in need are on the nice list for Mohawk College’s McKeil School of Business toy drive.

The school is collecting toys for every student at St. Ann Catholic Elementary in Hamilton’s lower city and 100 children at Mountain Kidz Klub.

Last year, the McKeil School of Business collected $13,000 worth of Christmas presents for 450 children. The annual toy drive is organized by Santa’s helper and Advertising program coordinator Wayne Aubert, who launched the toy drive to instil a spirit of giving in Mohawk students.

The community is welcome to join Mohawk students, faculty and staff in supporting the toy drive by dropping off unwrapped gifts to M Wing at Mohawk’s Fennell Campus, across from the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre.

To give gift cards and cash donations, contact Wayne Aubert at wayne.aubert@mohawkcollege.ca.
