Did you know that Mount Gravatt Mazda runs a Christmas toy drive for children affected by cancer and domestic violence? Now in its third year, the toy drive upholds the goal of making a difference in a child’s life.
Whilst the Christmas season is the most wonderful time of the year, it can be the most difficult time for families of kids with cancer and those seeking refuge from domestic violence. Thus, Mount Gravatt Mazda came up with the toy drive to bring some festive cheer to those who may be scared and lonely during this season.
So, until the 18th of December 2021, Mount Gravatt Mazda will accept gift donations, especially new toys, for the children to unwrap on Christmas Day. The dealership is hoping to fill up the Mazda BT-50 sleigh, currently on display at the showroom floor, with heaps of gifts that will be distributed to various paediatric oncology patients who will be at the Childhood Cancer Support annual Christmas party.
Childhood Cancer Support is non-profit established by a group of parents and has been around for 45 years. Through their help, families affected by childhood cancer receive treatment and care at the Queensland Children’s Hospital.
Beyond DV, established by mom and Holland Park teacher Carolyn Robinson, offers recovery and support programs for women and children of domestic violence. The organisation provides hands-on guidance as they rebuild their lives after a traumatic experience.
“At Mount Gravatt Mazda, we strongly believe that we have a responsibility to give something back to the community in which we do business. To act on this belief, we created our annual Festive Community Drive which is dedicated to supporting our local community at Christmas.”
