Toy drive helps make Christmas dreams come true
“I couldn’t imagine a child getting up on Christmas morning and not having any- thing,” she said. “The first two gifts in the box for last year’s drive came frommy two girls who bought them with their own money.” With a delivery deadline of Dec. 10, Pao- lino asks that individuals and companies CSEPR, l’unique ressource en emploi
donating to the toy drive bring their new or gently-used toys or cash donations to the bis- tro on Laurier Street near the Laporte Bou- levard intersection for dropoff. Toys should be unwrapped.

Flanked left and right by daughters Kora Lynn and Emma Rose, Alana Paolino reveals the inspiration behind her annual toy drive for the Rockland Help Centre.
64 toys and also about $1000 or more in cash to hand over to the Rockland Help Centre to guarantee there were no tears on some young faces on Christmas Day last year. “This year, we have 200 kids we are trying to help out,” she said. “Ages range from a baby to 15 years old. That’s a lot of kids.” The Optimist Club’s Angel Tree and the TD/Canada Trust Christmas Elves programs in Clarence-Rockland already help local social service agencies make sure there are Christmas gifts for local children and the various church parishes in the community also have their aid programs. Paolino’s annual toy drive for the Help Centre seeks to make sure no child is left wanting on Christmas Day.

A chance remark overheard last year at the bistro she co-owns and runs with her husband and helpmate, Peter, prompted Alana Paolino to launch the annual Rosa- lyn’s Toy Drive. “I’d been sitting here, listening to a conversation where someone was saying they were 50 toys short,” she said, explaining how the toy drive project for the Rockland Help Centre began. “I decided we’d do some- thing here.” Within a week and a half, Paolino, with help from family and friends, had gathered Spa Mauve is introducing Elycia Smith!
