Hamilton, Ontario — Santa has sub-contractors in the CARSTAR Torcam Group, who brought the cheer to their local community this holiday season in the form of $3,000 in gifts donated to the Salvation Army Brantford and Salvation Army Simcoe.
Led by partners Javier Torres, Sebastian Torres and Liliana Galeano, the CARSTAR Torcam Group owns CARSTAR Brantford, CARSTAR Brantford West and CARSTAR Simcoe.
This year, employees from each store were given the wish lists of local families to purchase gifts for.
“We had a blast shopping as a team and it meant that much more to us because it was for a good cause,” said Sebastian.
“Both Simcoe and Brantford are filled with incredibly generous individuals, so we also hosted a toy drive at each of our locations to expand our contribution to the Salvation Army.”
Brantford, Ont. mayor Kevin Davis and Norfolk County deputy mayor Chris Van Paassen were present for the donations at their respective local Salvation Army branches.
The Salvation Army has been operating in the Brantford and Simcoe (Norfolk County) areas since 1885 and 1884 respectively.
