This morning we had Rick Berenz, president of the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive, in the studio and he shared with us the spectacular things the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive Charity is doing and how you can be a part of the inspiring initiative.
They’ve been helping families 365 days a year since 1998 and they need all they help can get. That’s where you come in.
The smallest gift, no matter what it is, makes a child who would otherwise be receiving nothing this Christmas the happiest child on the planet. Drop of a new, unwrapped toy at any Toronto fire hall near you to make someone’s Christmas.
Rick listed things like toques, sweatshirts, gloves, makeup kits, hairdryers, among those in the highest demand and of the greatest necessity this year.
For a lot of these children aged 12-16, things like new clothes, hairdryers, and makeup kits, allows them to have more control over their appearance and to rebuild their confidence. Something that is truly vital at their age and this is often an age group left out in Toy Drives.
You can give back to the community during one of the craziest times of the year and you can make a really big difference. Donate this week or next month, the gifts are accepted and given out all year.
Buy a toque to show your support for the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive.
100% of the proceeds go right back into the Toy Drive Charity!
So when people see your sweet toque and ask you where you got it, you can tell them it’s from the Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive and you got it because you’re a great human.
When you have the extra time, drop a toy off at a local fire station near you. Check out the map here, or below.
