“We are honored and excited to host our second annual on-site Toy Drive in partnership with the Salvation Army’s CTV Toy Mountain,” explained Advanced President David Weatherhead. “Last year, our employees banded together to collect over 120 toys for local families struggling to provide their children with gifts. We’re looking forward to continuing that momentum this year and helping to make a greater difference for the families in the Toronto community.”

Through the Salvation Army, CTV Toy Mountain donations are regularly collected at various local events and major malls throughout the area, and are then transported to The Salvation Army Food & Toy Distribution Warehouse. They are then given to the “Family Services Centre,” where the staff creates a “Christmas Store” with the inventory. Parents of registered families come to the “Christmas Store” and choose toys and educational items for their children with the help of a volunteer host. 

“The AV community has the capacity to come together to help those in need,” Weatherhead concluded. “We at Advanced are committed to giving back to the local Toronto community in every way that we can.
