The Oakville Professional Firefighters Association is proud to launch its annual holiday toy drive, with the goal of giving every local child an opportunity to enjoy a gift of their own this holiday season.
The drive will kick off Friday, November 25 with a Teddy Bear Toss at the Oakville Blades Hockey Game, and will continue through Sunday, December 18. All donations will be distributed directly to local families, institutions and community agencies supporting children and youth.
Based on emerging information, need is expected to be higher this year as both families and family services organizations increasingly struggle with rising costs. Oakville's firefighters are hopeful that together with the community we can meet this challenge and help ensure young people do not have to go without a holiday gift this year.
The Firefighters are issuing a special call for gifts and gift cards suitable for boys and girls ages 11 to 15, the age group for which the need is highest this year.
Oakville residents are encouraged to bring a gift card, unwrapped toy, and/or non-perishable food donation item to Coronation Park on Friday, December 9 between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., which will feature a holiday light display, Santa waving from his sleigh and other festive guests.
