Seventh Annual Toys 4 Teens Holiday Campaign Launches

Posted on by Mike

toys-for-teens-2014

London Drugs, Jack FM Radio and 660 News Partner to Collect Gifts for
Forgotten 10 to 17-year-olds in Calgary  

Every year, many parents or guardians struggle to afford gifts for their children during the holidays. While toy drives are making a big difference in the lives of many of these children, the amount of gifts donated for tweens and teens falls short of the demand.

London Drugs has partnered with Jack FM Radio Calgary and 660 News Calgary to support donations of gifts for young people between the ages of 10 and 17 for the seventh annual Toys 4 Teens holiday campaign. The campaign is part of the Salvation Army’s Family Christmas Assistance Program, which aims to put Christmas gifts in the hands of those less fortunate throughout Calgary.

 

 

One of the reasons that there are fewer gifts donated for tweens and teens is that they can be a tricky group to shop for unless you are buying high tech tablets and smartphones.  Whether you’re shopping for your own child, or a child in need, here are some great inexpensive gift ideas for hard-to-buy-for youth.

Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Sub ban; City personalities Brad Smith and Dina Pugliese; and actors Joshua Jackson and Jason Priestley are among Hello! Canada’s 50 best-dressed Canadians.

In a digital exclusive, Hello! published its list on Thursday, including stars from entertainment, sports and philanthropy.

“When we thought about who to include, a flurry of striking details came to mind: the black rims of Dan Levy’s signature spectacles; a peek of leg beneath Suzanne Rogers’ Emilia Wick stead gown at our Most Beautiful party; the sheen off Joe Merman’s velvet smoking slippers; the glint of Dina Puglisi’s statement jewelry and so many more,” Hello! writes.

From the entertainment world, there are actors Shanae Grimes-Beech, Dan Levy and Kiesz as well as supermodel Coco Rocha.

Philanthropists on the list include Suzanne Rogers, Jenna Biotope and Sylvia Mantilla.

During the Sochi Olympics we developed a national crush on the DUfour-Lapointe sisters.  For me, it’s now love.  They joined us this morning on JACKFM. They’re in town promoting the Bay’s red mitten campaign.  They’ll be at Chinook this aft.
