The cast of Some Assembly Required joins Nash team members for an in-store shopping spree to help Vancouver’s Salvation Army
Art imitates life as the cast of YTV’s highly anticipated new sitcom Some Assembly Required, a show about kids running their own toy company from Thunderbird Films, takes over a Toys “R” Us store. The young stars are lending their support to Steve Nash Fitness Clubs in the kick-off for its Holiday Campaign to benefit the Vancouver Chapter of the Salvation Army in its Adopt-a-Family program.
On Saturday, November 30th at 9:30am at the Coquitlam Toys ”R“ Us store, Steve Nash team members along with cast members Kolton Stewart, Charlie Storwick, Harrison Houde, Sydney Scotia, Dylan Playfair, Travis Turner and Ellie Harvie will be given $4,000 by the Steve Nash Fitness Clubs to shop for toys and necessities to ensure children in the community have a happy holiday. Toys “R” Us is helping by generously providing a discount to help purchase as many toys as possible.
“We are very excited to have the cast of Some Assembly Required join our campaign this year. After hearing about the premise of the show, we knew it was a perfect fit – it’s like having our own personal ‘toy specialists’ to help,” says Brent Gaserowski, Nash Clubs Director of Marketing. “We value the work the Salvation Army does in our local communities and want to support what we feel is a wonderful and vital program for the Holiday Season. We are appreciative to have Toys “R” Us on board again this year and are grateful for the help from the Coquitlam store.”
As part of the local Salvation Army’s Adopt-A-Family program, food and toys are packed up by volunteers in each community and given to families that are struggling this holiday season. Donation Bins will be set up in the Nash Clubs for the month of December and as well as on the set of Some Assembly Required for audience members attending the live shows who want to lend their support.
The Salvation Army Vancouver Community and Family Services Executive Director, Major Russ Holland says, “Steve Nash Fitness Club is a champion in the communities to which they are a member of and we are so grateful for their dedication and support in providing hope for so many deserving families in need this holiday season.”
The public are invited to come to Toys “R” Us in Coquitlam on November 30th at 9:30am to cheer on the cast and are encouraged to buy or bring a toy to contribute to the Toy Drive.
