Toronto Fire Fighters from Fire Station 115 and David Caplan (MPP, Don Valley East) will once again bring gifts to children at North York General Hospital, Pediatric Unit 3 North.
Date: TODAY, Tuesday, December 20
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: North York General Hospital, Main Entrance, Pediatric Unit 3 North
4100 Leslie St. (southeast Leslie Street and Sheppard Avenue)
All 81 Toronto Fire Stations welcome new, unwrapped toys until Christmas Eve. The Toronto Fire Fighters’ Toy Drive continues to accept gifts for children of all ages - from infants to 17
years of age. Gifts for teenagers are in short supply.
The various Fire Departments that make up the Toronto Fire Services have been involved with humanitarian initiatives during the holiday season since the 1950s, when fire
fighters repaired bikes and used toys to give to needy children for Christmas.
