DB Schenker in Canada Launches Holiday Charity Drive

Campaign will collect toys and clothing for Canadians struggling through the recession

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2009) - Schenker of Canada Limited, one of the country's leading logistics service providers, is reaching out to its employees, suppliers, partners and the transportation industry at large to help raise the spirits of those less fortunate this Holiday Season. From November 2 to December 18, 2009, the company is asking for donations of new, unwrapped toys for children (newborn to 16 years of age) and new or gently used clothing for both children and parents to be dropped off at one of Schenker Canada's 40-plus offices across the country. Organizers are asking donors not to forget those children aged 10 to 16 who are often overlooked in favour of younger kids. After December 18, items collected will be delivered to local charitable organizations in each community.

"This Holiday Season will be very difficult for many Canadian families - and their children in particular," observes Brian Martin, vice-president, Sales & Marketing, Schenker of Canada Limited. "We're trying to do our best to help make this Holiday Season a happy one for Canadians in need."
