Each year UNIFOR Local 127 at MSSC organizes a toy drive in which all employees are encouraged to contribute new unwrapped toys for Chatham Goodfellows. Earl Woudwyk, president of UNIFOR Local 127 at MSSC, said that employees have been very generous. This year was by far their most successful toy drive. Several large pallets full of news toys that total well in excess of $8,000.00 were collected. The toys were turned over to Chatham Goodfellows Monday afternoon.

Chatham Goodfellows appreciates the generosity of MSSC and their employees. Our motto is simple; No Child Without a Christmas. While our Code is much longer, one of the key statements in the Code says it all; It’s understanding a neighbour’s plight, and caring enough to do what’s right.
