Budds' annual Christmas party collects Toys for Tots
By Mike Davey
Oakville, Ontario -- December 30, 2013 -- The Christmas lunch at Buddsâ€™ Collision Services in Oakville, Ont., is an annual industry tradition, drawing together stakeholders from all parts of the local auto claims economy. Itâ€™s always a good time and a chance to renew contact with peers. This year, though, there was something more to the event than good cheer.
Budds Collision Services added a twist that fit in perfectly with the event and with the season: collecting toys for children in need.
â€œWe asked folks to bring an unwrapped toy with them,â€ says Sam Piercey, co-owner of Buddsâ€™ Collision Services. â€œWe collected a van full during the event, so we know we all helped to make sure kids had a Merry Christmas.â€
All donations were given to the Halton Regional Police Service's Toys for Tots programs. You can see more about this program here.
