Performing Dance Arts Announces Toy Drive with CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish Program
Toronto, Ontario, November 20, 2015 – Performing Dance Arts (www.performingdancearts.ca), Toronto’s leading dance studio for children of all skill levels, is announcing its participation in the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish program toy drive.
Saturday, December 5 to Friday, December 11 marks the 49th annual toy drive for the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish program. This drive has become one of the largest providers of toys to children in need, along with contributions to over 300,000 people across the GTA.
“It’s an honour for us to take part in an event that does this much good,” says Ashley Daychak, Creative Director at Performing Dance Arts. “Knowing we can play a part in helping to touch so many lives is really all we can ask for. Everyone at Performing Dance Arts will do our very best to encourage as many people as we can to donate toys.”
The most pressing need is for infants up to the age of 12 months and for teenagers. Gift packs with personal hygiene items such as deodorant and shampoo are cited by drive organizers as preferred items, though they are more than pleased with whatever can be provided.
“The holidays are all about sharing,” Daychak continues. “Giving to those who are less fortunate is a huge part of why we celebrate the holidays in the first place. This toy drive is an opportunity to show our spirit and be as generous as we can.”
Daychak says that all Performing Dance Arts dancers are encouraged to come to class dressed in pyjamas that week as a way to reiterate its uniqueness.
“It will be a fun way to show our efforts and to let everyone know how special that week really is. We couldn’t be more excited and can’t wait to see everyone there.”
Performing Dance Arts offers both professional and casual dance classes to children of all ages. They operate out of a dance studio in the Woodbridge area and serve all of the York Region and the GTA.
