For Elias Demangos, President of Fortigo Freight Services, it’s his favorite delivery of the year.
The Toronto-based company is one of Canada’s largest and most innovative trucking companies with hundreds of tractor-trailers delivering everything from home goods, industrial equipment and food products to businesses throughout the country.
“We did our favorite delivery of the year,” Elias told The Pappas Post after an inquiry following a Facebook post.
“We delivered a palette of toys that will be shared with underpriveleged kids in our city and quite frankly, even though we’re only making a small dent, we feel damn awesome,” Demangos said.
The company took part in an initiative called Toy Mountain which encourages businesses to donate new toys for distribution to needy kids during Christmas time.
Demangos and his team made the delivery to Toy Mountain personally and couldn’t hide his joy, thinking about the smiles these toys would bring hundreds of young kids in his city.
“Isn’t this what Christmas is all about,” Demangos said.
