The holidays are the time of year for family, friends, and festivities. It is the most wonderful time of the year after all! Unfortunately not everyone has the privilege to be as fortunate as most of us.

Many families struggle with financial resources, making Christmas frustrating and unfulfilling. Parents are forced to choose between paying bills and buying gifts, which can be so disheartening.

Last year, The Salvation Army, along with their partners, was able to help thousands of families in need of support during the Christmas Season. One parent in Winnipeg, Manitoba, had a positive message after she visited Toy Mountain. “The Salvation Army makes me feel welcome and comfortable,” she said. “Here I hold my head up high knowing I’m not just getting a hand out, but a hand up.”

Parents are able to hand pick items from the Toy Mountain for their children. The Salvation Army aims to nurture the dignity for those in need by allowing parents to choose something they know their children will want and appreciate.

This year, we wanted to get involved and give back. Splashes has decided to become a drop off zone for the annual Toy Mountain event. We are collecting donations of unwrapped toys to help build Toy Mountain for this wonderful cause. In return, we’re offering a free touchless car wash for each donation received. We are aiming to make this holiday season special for families in need.

Help us make this holiday season memorable for everyone!
