Innovapost Toy Mountaineers Embrace the Spirit of Giving

December 15, 2010

On Friday, December 10, 2011, a group of Consulting folks gave a helping hand to the Salvation Army Toy Mountain Depot in Ottawa, unloading toys from the delivery trucks, unpacking boxes, sorting and packaging toys, and greeting families as they arrived to pick up toys for their children.

This marked their second year volunteering as Toy Mountaineers. Surrounded by thousands and thousands of toys, our Consulting group found themselves reminiscing about their childhood days and their favourite toys that made the holidays so exciting. Knowing that their volunteer efforts would allow those less fortunate children in our community to experience that same excitement opening gifts on Christmas Day, made volunteering here so worthwhile.

Many thanks to our Toy Mountaineers for donating their time and efforts to this worthy cause.
A news story was published in the Metroland local newspaper featuring an interview with one of our Innovapost Consulting members.

Background
During the holiday season, local residents drop off thousands of children’s toys at the Majic 100/ CTV Toy Mountains, which are set up in shopping malls across the city. These toys, along with donations of new, unwrapped toys from local businesses arrive at the Toy Depot in Ottawa, ready to be sorted and packaged for some very deserving little boys and girls. This year, the Salvation Army expects to serve 15,000 children in the Ottawa region. For more details, visit their website.
