Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Now is the time of year when families gather together in celebration, and look forward to all that will come in the New Year.    It’s the time for reflection and introspection, a time for giving thanks for all we have, and a time for giving to the many among us that do not have the privilege of enjoying all that Christmas has to offer.  That’s why LDC will be organizing a gift collection drive to the CHUM Christmas Wish Foundation.  

This year marks the 47th Annual CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish Foundation, which is one of the largest distributors of toys to children in need throughout the GTA.  The program also provides financial assistance to hundreds of agencies, ensuring that hundreds of thousands of children across the GTA enjoy a Christmas Experience.  On Monday, July 8th, The CP24 Chum Christmas Wish Foundation suffered significant Flood Damage, and teams are currently sorting and repacking any salvageable items. For those who are interested in lending support through financial donations, please visit:
