Mountain Kidz needs your help with 2010 toy drive

Mountain Kidz Klub needs your help. Once again, the faculty and students of Mohawk College's Advertising Program are collecting toys for Mountain Kidz Klub's 2010 toy drive.

Over the past year, Mohawk's Advertising program has supported Mountain Kidz with a Car Wash, a PumpkinFest event, and preparing for a Dinner with Santa event.

Mountain Kidz is a program that offers after-school activities for kids on the Mountain. In recent years the organization has grown to serve all of Hamilton and now offers food and clothing banks and a weekend soup kitchen. They also provide meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas for those in need. 

Mountrain Kidz needs 100 toys, $15 maximum value, for kids of all ages. They request that all toys be new and to please not donate plush toys or toy guns and related items. Last year the Advertising program supplied all the needed toys and as a result Mountain Kidz did not have to purchase any toys in 2009.

The Advertising Program will be collecting toys for the month of November. Toys can be dropped off at M wing Reception (students) or Wayne Aubert's office in M wing (faculty) during the month.

Got a larger or more expensive toy to "regift"? Please bring it in. Large toys are raffled off to raise money to buy more toys. Gift cards, Canadian Tire Money or cash donations are also appreciated.
