TORONTO, ONTARIO, December 23, 2015  – Fifty stores from McKesson Canada’s retail pharmacy banners, Guardian and I.D.A., worked together to make the holiday season a lot merrier for families within the Region of Peel.  They gathered close to $15,000 worth of toys for “Toys for Tots”.

“I am proud that our network of pharmacists continue to show compassion for their communities during this period of the year,” added Andrew Parkes, President, Guardian and I.D.A. “Toys for Tots is about more than toys.  It’s about hope and community.”

On December 22, her worship Mayor Linda Jeffrey of Brampton, joined Deputy Chief of Police, Chris McCord, to accept the donation from a delegation of Guardian and I.D.A. store owners led by Ramnik Sachania, Pharmacist/Owner at Heritage Hills Pharmacy; Divyesh Patel,  Pharmacist/Owner at Charolais I.D.A.
