Our 2019 Toy Drive Kicks Off November 16th!

Donated toys around the tree at Oakville Town Hall

“We are so very grateful for the support we receive from the Oakville Firefighters Toy Drive,” said Michelle Pommells, Home Suite Hope President and CEO. “The toys provided are one of the highlights of the holidays for the children in our program”.

 

We are committed to supporting our community, and we know that local residents and businesses will come together to bring holiday gifts to every child in our town.”  Each year we sort and distribute thousands of gift donations directly to local families, institutions and
community agencies supporting children. These include:

 

  • Halton Childrens Aid Society

  • Kinark Child and Family Services

  • Kerr Street Mission

  • Halton Womens Place

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters Halton

  • Front Line Outreach

  • Salvation Army Oakville

  • Home Suite Hope

  • Military Family Resource Centre

  • Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital

  • Safety Net Services

  • Rolling Horses Bicycle Outreach

The mission of the Oakville Fire Fighters Toy Drive is to ensure every local child has an opportunity to unwrap a gift of their own over the holidays.

 

All donations are distributed directly to local families, institutions and community agencies supporting children and youth in Oakville and Halton Region.

 

In 2018, we provided gifts to 4026 local children and youth in need who would not have otherwise received a gift.

Gift suggestions

All donations are greatly appreciated, however the area of greatest need will be gifts for boys and girls ages 11-16 as we are always short on donations for this age group. Some gift ideas for this age group include: gift cards, sports equipment, electronics, posters, calendars, journals, school supplies, backpacks, clothing, winter hats and gloves, jewelry, hair accessories, nail polish, makeup, blankets, shower products & movies.
 

How To Donate

The Oakville Santa Claus Parade will take place on Saturday, November 16th starting at 9 a.m., beginning at the corner of Lakeshore and Reynolds, continuing West along Lakeshore and North along Kerr Street.

 

Drop your gift off in the truck as the Firefighters pass by in the parade, or bring your gift to any Oakville Fire Station by December 18th.

Get Involved
Community groups and corporations are encouraged to spread the holiday cheer by organizing their own toy drives or donations to support the Oakville Firefighters Toy Drive.
