Our connection to our community is important to our customers as well, which is why our celebration wouldn't be complete without partnering with our charitable organization of choice. Our Giant Tiger team is committed to raise funds to help local organizations and today presents a great opportunity to do so."

The fun-filled day will also include music, face painting, balloons and treats.
