Media Advisory/REMINDER: Welcome Hall Mission's Toy Day Means CHRISTMAS FOR ALL!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 9, 2011) - On December 10th, Welcome Hall Mission is throwing a Christmas party for thousands of children from underprivileged families registered with us. They will be given new toys just in time for the holidays! Did you know that in Montreal, 26% of children live below the poverty line?

This special distribution, called Christmas for All, brings joy to the lives of children, offering them hope amid the reality of their circumstances. We are transforming our food bank area into a huge party room where they can decorate Christmas ornaments, get their faces painted with seasonal designs, play games, sit on Santa's lap and receive new toys for Christmas!

The media is invited to witness the true spirit of Christmas giving and serving those in need in our community with dignity and respect. Help us bring awareness to the important issue of child poverty.
