Corpus Christi Catholic Secondary will be hosting it's Annual Wooden Toy Shop on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 

WHEN:

Saturday, December 8, 2018 9:00 AM

WHY:

On Saturday, December 8, 2018, the Corpus Christi community will gather to sand, paint, glue and assemble toys to donate to local children in need.

The toys were prepped and manufactured by Corpus Christi student volunteers, who have worked hard after school over the last few weeks in the school's woodshop.

The toy shop is held annually, and is led by teacher Rick Karniej, whose goal is to give children an 'old-fashioned Christmas'.

This year, the hope is to craft over 200 wooden toys to donate to charities in Burlington and Hamilton. Some toys include trains, planes, rocking horses, and art easels.
