The Hamilton-Halton Home Builders’ Association held its annual Holiday Social and Toy Drive  collecting 135 toys that were donated to City Kidz. This year’s toy drive was a great success, with 30 percent more toys donated than last year thanks to the generous support of Association members and partners. Every year, the HHHBA answers the call to collect much needed toys for kids in our community and every year the success of this event continues to grow.
The new toys will be donated to City Kidz, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children living in the inner city. This year, City Kidz hopes to collect 4,000 new toys for children in the Hamilton community. They will distribute the gifts at their annual Christmas party on hhhbatoydrive2 14th, where they provide children with dinner, candy bags, prizes, and a personally selected gift.
