“As an organization, we are very pleased to continue to support the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive,” says Philipp von Witzendorff, Vice President and Head of Toronto Retail Operations. “Zanchin Auto Group employees are deeply invested in giving back to their communities. The Toy Drive is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the public and to support a charitable organization that has made a difference in the lives of thousands of children and their families over the years.”


Since Santa’s sleigh isn’t built for Toronto traffic, the Toronto Fire Fighters will opt for Santa’s Sprinter and Merry Metris vans to deliver cheer across the GTA. This is the fourth year that Zanchin Auto Group has supported the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive.


“We have been working in close partnership with the Zanchin Auto Group since 2014, and are grateful for the part they have played in allowing us to reach our goals,” says Rick Berenz, President of the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive. “The versatility of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Metris vans has proved invaluable to the success of the yearly toy drive. Together, our organizations have made a tangible difference in the lives of deserving families across the GTA.”
