Toronto Fire Fighters’ Toy Drive
  
The Toronto Fire Services in partnership with the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters’ Association Local 3888 (TPFFA), the City of Toronto, retirees, students, volunteers and many corporate sponsors are teaming up for the annual Toronto Fire Fighters’ Toy Drive.

Until December 24, Toronto Fire Service locations will accept new unwrapped toys and sporting goods. Firefighter volunteers will distribute the gifts to children ranging in age from infants to 17 years that are in hospitals or shelters. Management staff and TPFFA volunteers will also visit children on Christmas Day.

“I encourage all those that can give, to give to this worthy cause,” said Fire Chief William Stewart. “Over the years thousands of children and families have enjoyed a new gift at this time of year due to the generosity of so many.”

Gift requests are to be directed to the City of Toronto Christmas Bureau at 416-392-3601, cbureau@toronto.ca or by fax at 416-392-9813.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of more than 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
