Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

Following a heartbreaking story last week that saw a devastating break-in at the Salvation Army downtown, Vancouver radio stations are banding together Tuesday December 9th for Toys for Teens Day.

For the first time in history, every radio station in Vancouver has joined forces to help refill that warehouse.

103.5 QM/FM is proud to take part in The Salvation Army Toys For Teens Day Tuesday December 9th. Show your support by dropping off a new unwrapped toy for a teen or make a cash donation at the QM/FM Studios (380 West 2nd). [QM/FM]

Various radio stations from Corus (730, 980, 99.3, 101, 1) to CHUM (1410, 1040, 103.5, 94.5), Rogers (1130, 96.9, 104.9) and more are opening their doors on Tuesday for this toy drive and you can find other donation locations from 6:00am until 6:00pm.

“While this theft was a very unfortunate incident for the Salvation Army, sometimes it takes a bad deed to incite incredible generosity within our community. We couldn’t be happier to hear that Vancouver Radio has united behind this one cause. We’re sure now that we will double the amount stolen just because of this initiative” said the Salvation Army’s Major Brian Venables. [Talk1410am]

You can tune in or check out the websites of your favourite stations that day for more donation locations and information.
