Toy and Turkey Drive

Every December, Losani Homes hosts their annual Toy and Turkey Drive Christmas gathering for family, friends, partners and staff. It’s always a joyous day full of great food, laughter, and holiday cheer. This event speaks volumes to the roots of Losani Homes, as many attendees have been friends and partners of the Losani family since the company’s inception in 1976. In fact, along with Nonna’s Cucina, a family owned and operated restaurant, much of the food is personally prepared by Maria and Giovanni Losani, Losani Homes’ original founder. President and CEO, Lino and Fred Losani along with charitable partner, Free the Children, always use this annual gathering as a platform to spread awareness and express the importance giving back within our own community and internationally. Through the annual Toy and Turkey Drive, millions of dollars have been raised to feed local families in need and thousands of toys have been handed out to needy children over the holiday season. As well, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised through the kind donations of the Toy and Turkey Drive attendees.

Free the Children is an international charity and educational partner that believes in a world where all children are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of sustainable change, regardless of circumstance. Founded in 1995 by Thornhill, Ontario’s Craig Kielburger, a then 11 year old boy, Free the Children stands today an international charity with more than 2.3 million youth involved in innovative education development programs, largely in the developing world. After unveiling this exciting new partnership earlier in 2014, Fred Losani used the Toy and Turkey Drive as a platform to spread awareness and gather donations.

Every year, emotions run high during passionate presentations, and very clear and concise messages are sent – we all have a responsibility to look after one another, whether it be through the holidays or otherwise. Losani Home’s is proud to be associated with the Free the Children organization, and through the continued support of the community, will help propel the movement of sustainable change well into the new year and beyond. A very Merry Christmas to all…
