Local Businesses Team Up in Support of Children's Aid Foundation


Local businesses have answered an urgent call for donations from the Windsor-Essex Children's Aid Foundation this holiday season.

Team Goran RE/MAX has partnered with several local businesses for the Children's Aid Foundation Holiday Program Drive this weekend.

Owner Goran Todorovic says more than 700 families are in need of toys this Christmas. He's asking anyone who can afford it to donate cash, a gift card or an unwrapped toy.

"Reach deep into your heart to help the less fortunate. It all starts with the children, especially now, more than ever the Children's Aid Society is in need of help," he says. "Lets all work together to make the holidays season as bright and cheerful as we can."

Landscape Effects, Rafih Auto Group, Syles Mechanical, The Storage Box, Amico Construction, OMAC Mortgages and Desjardins Caisse Populaire helped sponsor the event.

Todorovic says the group has put together a raffle with $1,750 in prizes for those who donate.

Donations can be dropped off at the Team Goran RE/MAX CARE office at 1610 Sylvestre Drive near Manning and County Rd. 22. Monetary donations can be made online at www.remaxcares.com.

The toy drive runs until 6 p.m. Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
