Thank you to our amazing community for your generosity!

Oakville Firefighters and our amazing volunteers are proud and humbled to work on this community initiative. We could not have done this without the support of residents, local businesses, and community groups. Together we were able to distribute gifts for 5137 local children and youth! There are many families and youth living independently in our community who are in need for a variety of reasons. On behalf of the children who received gifts this year, and the parents, guardians and care workers who support them, Thank you! 


"I am in tears as I write this. I just came home from picking up donations of gifts for my family. I am overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity your team and sponsors have provided for us, complete strangers. I can not thank you enough as I know I would not have been able to provide all of this. 

You can’t imagine what this means to us. I truly hope a day will come soon that I can pay it forward. I am forever grateful, and so very humbled as reaching out and asking for help was not easy.

I will never forget this. Thank you."

- A Grateful Mom


Thank you to our firefighters, partner charities and community members for volunteering your time coordinating events, collecting, sorting, packing and delivering items. We would also like to acknowledge the contributions of the Town of Oakville, providing logistical support, storage space, supplies and other support provided by the Office of the Mayor and Council, Fire Department, Recreation and Culture, Corporate Communications, Parks, Roads and Works, Oakville Public Library, and Print Centre.
