Christmas Holiday Toy Drive
 
Community Matters:
 
Herbert Pryke a very interesting guy and quite the creative “Chef” and as well as many other things … the leader of the Cooking School at the Real Canadian SuperStore at Yonge and Greenlane is very active in many charities in York Region.
 
As the philanthropy leader at the store he’s created a Holiday Toy Drive providing toys for Christmas for needy children in the York Region area for the last 2 years.
 
Over 13 large containers filled with donated toys will be provided this year to underprivileged children.
 
The team at NewRoads Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC, neighbours to the SuperStore have pitched in to support the charity for the last 2 years as well.  Jim VanDusen General Manager at NewRoads shared, “Herbert is a remarkable man – kind, hardworking and generous – especially with his time. Our team is proud to support our neighbours in their Holiday Toy Drive collecting donated toys and with volunteers”.
 
The Mayor of East Gwillimbury Virgina Hackson was on site, as well as York Regional Police and Fire Department and several others to celebrate the drive.
 
There were 1000’s of toys and volunteers from the SuperCentre, FedEx, NewRoads, York Regional Police were on hand to get them loaded and sent off to those in need.
 
Being involved in this way with our neighbours, government and emergency service people all to support needs in our community is what the holidays to us …. are really about.
