The Toy Drive Committee at CENTURY 21 United Realty Inc. is ecstatic to share the news of our success from our fundraising efforts this year on behalf of the Salvation Army Toy Drive. Each year our team helps contribute whatever we can to the families supported by the Salvation Army within our community in Peterborough and the surrounding areas.
This year, we have had an incredibly fun time raising more money than ever before!!! Last year we hit a record raising just over $9,700 in cash and canadian tire money - enough money to purchase over 950 toys! This year we set a new record of $10,000 at the beginning of 2010 and are happy to announce that not only did we meet that goal, but we exceeded it by a long shot!!!
The Toy Drive Committee is happy to announce that in total, for 2010, we raised just over $11,800 for the children in need within our community!!! And we couldn't be happier!
We wrapped up our fundraising yesterday afternoon with the draws coming to an end and all final donations being received by the end of the business day!
Yesterday morning, we arranged for two teams to go out shopping and spend all of the money on toys at two different locations in Peterborough. Half of us went to Canadian Tire, while the the other half went to Zellers and we spent ALL of the money we have raised over the last year. We bought well over 1050 toys exceeding our expectations for this year!
Once the shopping was done we brought all of the toys back to the office and set them up around the front foyer. They will stay here at the office until Saturday morning when we will bag them all up and take them to Lansdowne Place here in Peterborough for the Miracle Broadcast with Country 105/Energy 99.7. The Miracle Broadcast will take place all day tomorrow from 9am to 5pm on the upper level of the mall. For additional details regarding the miracle broadcast, please click HERE
