The “Miracle on Queen Street” initiative by The Exchange Brewery helps spread holiday cheer to those less fortunate in our communities (and gets you free beer!).
This Holiday Season, The Exchange Brewery is collaborating with Project SHARE in organizing a toy drive to collect toys for less fortunate teens and kids across Niagara’s communities. To take part, bring a toy to donate (CAD$10 minimum value) to The Exchange Brewery, any time between December 10th-23rd, and get a complimentary 3-beer tasting flight as a token of our appreciation.
“We are pleased to support Project SHARE’s toy drive this month to help put smiles on more children’s faces after this particularly challenging year. There’s no doubt that every child in Niagara deserves to receive a present this holiday season! With the help of our community, we look forward to spreading some holiday cheer and supporting those in need in Niagara.” (Robin Ridesic, CEO & Co-Founder of The Exchange Brewery)
You can drop your toy donation(s) off at The Exchange Brewery (7 Queen Street, NOTL) during tasting room opening hours: Monday-Thursday 12-8pm / Friday 12-9pm / Saturday-Sunday 11-9pm.
Donated toys will be then distributed through Project SHARE’s Christmas Program. This program provides holiday meals and gifts to children 17 and under, who are living below the poverty line in Niagara Falls. Last year, the program helped almost 4,000 people and it anticipates the need will be even greater this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Wondering what toys to bring? Project SHARE’s most needed donations are gifts for 12-17 year olds – including hoodies, pyjamas, skateboards, video games, makeup and gift cards. Dolls for younger kids are also in high demand. Donated toys should be new and unwrapped. No used or gently used items will be accepted.
