Toy fundraiser at Ponoka’s Red Apple

All day Saturday the doors will be open to ensure kids will receive some toys

The Bargain! Shop and Red Apple stores are dedicated to making a difference and giving back to the communities they serve across Canada.

On Saturday, Dec. 8th, stores will host Fill A Sleigh Day. The goal is for each store to fill a sleigh with toys for children in their community. Along with the generous donation of toys, the company will donate 10 per cent of all toy sales for that day to the store’s local charity of choice. This marks the second year The Bargain! Shop and Red Apple stores will host Fill A Sleigh Day as part of their annual Together We Care Toy Drive.

“We are thrilled to hold this event again this year.” said Clinton Wolff, CEO. “Last year, our generous customers went above and beyond to ensure children in their community experienced the joy of the Christmas season. This year, we are hoping for an even bigger day! There is nothing better than seeing the community come together to bring smiles to children’s faces and surprising them with a special toy for Christmas.”

Join The Bargain! Shop and Red Apple stores for some festive fun and holiday warmth and help Fill A Sleigh with toys to give a child a magical Christmas this year.

The Together We Care program was created to help raise funds to support initiatives and charities in each local area. The company believes it is important that all local fundraising should go directly back into the community.
