Helping Out Over the Holidays

In Continental Connection by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

While we’re making our wishlists, it’s good to remember that the holiday season is really about giving! Helping out is important to the Continental family, especially over the holidays. With plummeting temperatures, the added pressure of giving gifts and spending money, it’s especially important to help out over the holidays and remember those less fortunate than us. A few of our branches have already begun celebrating the giving season!

Stoney Creek Winter Clothing Drive

Our Eastgate Square branch is collecting donations for lightly-used winter clothing. Bring by your gently-used scarves, mittens, hats, and winter-wear. Visit our Stoney Creek branch in Hamilton with your donations toady! Winter clothing is a Canadian necessity and we’re proud to collect donations to help out Hamilton families and the community get through the winter.

Erin Mills Food Drive

Located inside the Erin Mills Town Centre, our Mississauga branch is accepting food donations. Stop by with a non-perishable food item to donate anytime during our open hours throughout the holiday season.

Pickering Donations for Salvation Army

Our Pickering branch has teamed up with the Salvation Army to collect non-perishable food items at the store. We have a Salvation Army donation bin in the store and will be offering clients who bring food donations exclusive rates! Visit the Pickering branch today with a non-perishable food item. We’re located inside the Pickering Town Centre.

Brampton Donations for Salvation Army

Our Brampton branch is collecting toys and food throughout the holiday season. All donations will go to the Salvation Army. Any clients who bring a donation will have their service fee waived and receive our VIP rate – while clients who are already part of our VIP club will receive double savings! Come by and place a donation under our tree at the Brampton branch located inside the Bramalea City Centre

Burlington Food Drive

Our Burlington branch is also accepting food donations. Clients who donate will receive VIP rates and waived service fees. Visit our Burlington branch inside the Mapleview Centre.

Jackson Square Winter Clothing Donations

Our Jackson Square branch is collecting winter clothing. Anyone who brings a gently-used or new hat, a pair of mittens, a scarf, or any other winter-wear will receive VIP rates and no service fees. Visit our Jackson Square branch in Hamilton today with your donations!

Kitchener Toy Drive

In collaboration with a local radio station, our Kitchener branch is participating in a Christmas toy drive. We’ll be accepting toys for all ages of children to help make sure the kids in our community get Christmas presents. Drop off a toy at our Kitchener location in the Fairview Park Mall.

March of Dimes…at Every Branch!

We’ve been proud to partner with March of Dimes Canada for a while now. We accept donations at all our branches in Canadian dollars or leftover coins from your trip. Help out year round or during the holidays!

Help Out However You Can!

You can visit any of the above branches any time during our opening hours to drop off donations throughout the next month! If you don’t have a chance to participate in any of our charity events, please remember to join the giving in some other way if you can.

Happy Holidays!
