It's the time of giving, and The Best Music Q104 is looking for the community's support to help the Women's Shelters of Northwestern Ontario.
Members of the Q Crew along with the Dryden O.P.P. will be set up at the Dryden Walmart between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. today taking your donations of cash or new, unwrapped toys, which will go to help the families that utilize Women's Shelter, Saakaate House in Kenora, Hoshizaki House in Dryden and First Step Women's Shelter in Sioux Lookout.
This is the 18th Annual Toys & Toonies and Station Manager of Q104, KenoraOnline and DrydenNow, Dan McCann says it's an important piece of the holiday season for the team.
"Toys & Toonies has always been a big part of what we do at Christmas here at Q104 and it's very encouraging to see how the community comes together to support this. It's just such a privilege for us to support the women's shelters in what way we can and we look forward to doing this for a long time to come," he says.
Residents in the Kenora area can also contribute next week when the Q104 team will be set up at Walmart Saturday, December 11 from 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Donations can also be dropped off weekdays in Kenora at Q Headquarters - 619 Lakeview Drive or the Westland Insurance Office (formerly Gillions' Insurance) at 101 Park Street or in Dryden at the Westland Insurance Office (formerly Gillions' Insurance) at 49 Whyte Avenue.
