Hamilton, Ontario — December 15, 2013 — For the third year, CARSTAR Automotive Canada was a proud participant in YMCA of Hamilton Burlington Brantford’s holiday event Santa’s Ultimate Chill Zone. This annual event is attended by over 1,000 inner-city children and their families in the region.

As part of their contribution to the program, CARSTAR staff from the Hamilton head office visited local retailers and handpicked toys for over 50 girls and boys aged 10 to 14 years. In addition to providing gifts to children in the community, CARSTAR also made a significant financial contribution in support of the program.
 
“We are proud to support this initiative that brings the joy of Christmas to children and families in our community,” says CARSTAR’s executive vice-president, Lisa Mercanti-Ladd. “This donation is made on behalf of the whole CARSTAR family, who support the values of giving, family and community.”
 
The YMCA is committed to engaging youth in healthy lifestyles and through donations and sponsorships will provide a four month membership to attending families at no cost to them. This year’s event will take place Saturday, December 14th, 2013.
 
Since 1986, the YMCA and sponsors have come together to bring holiday cheer to children in the community. Each child will receive a gift from Santa and will get to take part in games, food and fun for their whole family.
