This year the Canadian Tire team decided that during this festive season they would get together and donate to local kids through the Salvation Army.

“We are a group of individuals in a community focused business and this year we decided that we would donate to locals in need,” said Jason Hayes, owner of Canadian Tire. “We are really happy to do it and I am proud of my team.”

Staff chose 60 names off the Angel Tree. Canadian Tire staff Sandra Luznar, Carol Gale and Sue Fox did all of the shopping.

“The team decided collectively that instead of spending $25 a plate on dinner, we would spend $50 per child,” said Sue Fox, manager. “We spent $3,000 in total.”

Lt. Kyla McKenzie accepted the gifts on behalf of the Salvation Army and extended a warm thank you to Canadian Tire team.
