Barrie and District Christmas Cheer were given two much-needed boosts on Wednesday.
They included two pickup loads of toys collected by staff and customers at Jackson's Toyota Scion in Barrie, plus a $20,000 cheque courtesy of the folks at KOOL FM and Rock 95 as part of their annual toy drive.
Christmas Cheer has a fundraising goal this year of $235,000, but as of Thursday, was still $73,000 short.
