Local Red Apple customers filled a sleigh worthy of Old Saint Nick himself.
On Saturday, Dec. 3, the Agassiz Red Apple participated in the annual Fill A Sleigh Day in support of Agassiz-Harrison Community Service, during which customers donated $8,074 to the cause.
The goal of Fill A Sleigh Day is to fill a sleigh full of donated toys, capping off the 6th annual Together We Care Toy Drive, which ran from Nov. 12 to Dec. 3. On top of that, Red Apple donates 10 per cent of all sales for the day to local charities across Canada.
“We’re all about giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and the ramp up to the holiday season is a time when we know we can do more,” stated Red Apple Stores president Brendan Proctor. “Together with our kind customers, we aim to make Christmas 2022 the best yet for those in need across Canada.”
Red Apple has 140 general stores across the country.
