Get into the Holiday Spirit with Red Apple and The Bargain! Shop’s Together We Care® Toy Drive and Fill-a-Sleigh Day

Mississauga, ON, November 29th, 2022 – Spread joy this holiday with Red Apple and The Bargain! Shops’ Together We Care® Toy Drive and Fill-a-Sleigh Day.

Now in its 6th year, the Together We Care® Toy Drive offers customers the opportunity to get into the holiday giving spirit: Begun on November 12th and running through December 3rd, every store from coast to coast will collect donations and then, partner with a charity of its choice to ensure that people in need have a fun and festive season.

“This year, we’re hoping we can once again count on the generous support of Red Apple and The Bargain! Shop’s customers, as we aim to collect $650,000 worth of toys and gifts for children in small communities across the country,” noted Brendan Proctor, President.

Then, on Saturday, December 3rd, we’ll celebrate the final day of the Toy Drive with our 6th annual Fill-a-Sleigh Day: When customers shop in stores across Canada, 10% of ALL sales[1] from the day will be donated to local charities.

“We’re all about giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and the ramp up to the holiday season is a time when we know we can do more. Together with our kind customers, we aim to make Christmas 2022 the best yet for those in need across Canada,” added Proctor.

Check with your local stores for details on the festivities on offer, and be sure to join our E-club or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for exclusive access to members-only savings events throughout the year.
