Salvation Army gets a boost from Toys R Us in Burnaby

Toys R Us in Burnaby just lent a helping hand to the Salvation Army.

Toys R Us Canada recently delivered more than $60,000 worth of Babies R Us products and food items to 69 different charities across the country. The goods included baby food, cereals and snacks, and they went to a variety of shelters, food banks and community groups that offer essential and emergency services to families who need it most – especially in the face of COVID-19.

“We know how hard it is to be a parent under normal circumstances,” says Sean Williams, vice-president of merchandising for Toys R Us Canada, in a press release. “Canadian parents could use extra help now more than ever. We’re happy to be able to donate these goods and to assist in whatever way we can.”

The Salvation Army received more than $700 in donations from Toys R Us in Burnaby for its New Westminster food program.
