Thank You for Supporting Our Fundraiser for the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund
The staff from Carrocel fine furniture wishes to thank our friends and customers for their participation in our Facebook fundraising effort on behalf of the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund. Carrocel committed to donate $1.00 to the Fund for every Like* received on our Facebook page over the period of December 7 to 23 and, through your thoughtfulness, this donation has now been made.
The target of the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund in 2016 was $1.7 million, to be used for the purchase and delivery of 45,000 gift boxes to underprivileged children at Christmas; the boxes each contained a hat, warm shirt, mittens, socks, a small toy, a book, candy, and dental hygiene products. As a result of the continuing kindness and support of local and area residents, including our friends and customers, the Fund has exceeded its goal.
The Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund was established in 1906 for the purpose of ensuring that no child would be without a gift during that year’s holiday season. Residents of the day from Toronto and surrounding areas were very supportive of this charitable initiative and the succeeding generations have continued to demonstrate such generosity for more than 100 years.
Our sincere thanks to all for your kind support of this time-honoured and worthy cause.
