Rowntree Montessori Schools’ students once again helped launch the 21st Annual Toys for Tots campaign in November at Canadian Tire.
Toys for Tots is a charitable endeavour that was initiated in 1993 by Peel Regional Police, in partnership with Canadian Tire and the Salvation Army. During the months of November and December, Police Officers and civilian staff volunteer their time to collect cash, Canadian Tire money and new unwrapped toys for children in need.
Total money raised by Rowntree Montessori Schools:
Academy campus: $52.50 and 270 toys collected!
Mayfield campus (11613 Bramalea Road): 34 toys collected!
Downtown campus (4 Elizabeth Street): $31.85 and 40 toys collected!
Central Park campus (502 Central Park Drive): $131.85 and 100 toys collected!
Bramalea campus (93 Autumn Blvd): $45.25 and 60 toys collected!
We thank the Rowntree Montessori Schools’ school community for their generous support.
In 2012, Toys for Tots raised over ONE MILLION DOLLARS to provide over 6,000 children with gifts at Christmas time.
For the last 9 years, Rowntree Montessori Schools has been invited to participate in the Charity Campaign launch and we love it!
