SURREY – The region’s Toy Mountain initiative comes to Guildford Town Centre on Thursday and Friday (Dec. 11 and 12), with the backing of CTV News Vancouver and local Bell Media radio stations.
The annual holiday campaign collects thousands of toys in support of The Salvation Army, for distribution to families in need across the region.
Last year at Toy Mountain, more than $26,000 in cash was donated and more than 15,000 toys collected.
Over the two days of Toy Mountain broadcasts, viewers and listeners are
encouraged to drop off new, unwrapped toys or cash donations at the big mall in Surrey.
New this year, supporters are encouraged to get the word out via social media using the hashtag #ToyMountainYVR, to challenge friends, family and co-workers to meet or beat their donation and help Toy Mountain reach new heights.
The event is presented by Alpine Credits and King of Floors.
