For children, Christmas is a magical time of year. For many of us, the joy of the Christmas spirit has carried into our adult life, as we desire to share it with our family and friends. In our community, this generosity carries much further. Many caring people wish to ensure that children in our community have the opportunity to create their own magical childhood memories. It was through this desire that Toyland started several decades ago and has since evolved to become a major community outreach project in the Greater Moncton area. In December 2015, Christmas arrived at the homes of over 1600 children, continuing the tradition of this holiday season.
This holiday tradition is our magical time at Moncton Headstart as we witness the kindness and generosity of so many in our community, either through the donation of toys, money or volunteer hours.
In the words of George Elliston, “How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it.”
