“We are thrilled that we were able to donate such a large number of toys,” said Bret Greenwood, president of Rondex. “A special thanks goes out to all of our valued customers and suppliers who wanted to make Christmas morning a very special day at the Ronald McDonald House – South Central Ontario.”
