Following in the 19 year tradition of Donnelly Group, Dutch Love retail locations across the country are now accepting toy and non-perishable donations
VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GoodNeighbour—Dutch Love Cannabis (“Dutch Love”) today kicked off its season of giving, announcing its first ever Good Neighbour Toy Drive in partnership with the Donnelly Fund. As a Donnelly Group venture, Dutch Love will continue the 19 year charitable tradition, while will see each of Dutch Love’s 320 employees, nationally, receive a $50 gift card to purchase toys for donation to the Toy Drive.
“In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Dutch Love is excited to join forces with the Donnelly Fund to not only give back, but also bring joy to the people in the communities where we do business,” said Harrison Stoker, Vice President at Donnelly Group. “This winter may look very different for many Canadians, and so it is important to us that we come together in support of the thousands of families and kids who look forward to the tradition established through Donnelly Group’s Toy Drive. Through Dutch Love, the Good Neighbour Toy Drive will extend the impact of the Donnelly Fund and the legacy of our annual Toy Drives. Our dedication to being a good neighbour and supporting community has never been more important than now.”
Toys or non-perishable food items can also be donated at Dutch Love locations where they’ll be sanitized and placed under festive trees. Through mid-December, the combined community and Dutch Love team efforts will culminate in a Salvation Army pop up store, where the items will be distributed to those that need them most.
Over the last 20 years, the Donnelly Fund has made over $700,000 in charitable donations, donated more than 21,000 toys to children in need through its annual Toy Drive, distributed nearly 5,000 hot meals over the holidays, collectively invested over 40,000 community hours, and provided almost 500 haircuts to marginalized people in preparation for job interviews.
