Gidney Brothers Give Kids Toys | Joys of Christmas
Teagan Gidney’s idea that popped up six years ago to share the joys of Christmas has inspired this wonderful story that captures the spirit of the season in Thorold. For starters in 2013, as a 5-year-old boy, Teagan and his classmates at Richmond Street Public School collected Canadian Tire money to donate to local families in need. From that experience, Teagan was motivated to ask his parents Amy and Rich to adopt their own family to support at Christmas. His parents were happy to give Teagan the green light to go ahead and run with the idea. As a result, the initiative has been growing bigger and stronger each year with Teagan and his younger brother Grayson. At their home in Thorold, brothers Teagan and Grayson Gidney are happy to display the toys from their fundraising efforts which will be shared as gifts to other kids in the community. This is their 6th year that the Gidney boys have adopted families for a Christmas celebration in Thorold. Each year the brothers approach the staff at Richmond Street School to compile a list of local families in need each year. This year Teagan (age 11) and Grayson (age 6) adopted 16 […]
