OAKVILLE – December 29th, 2022 – This is a very challenging time of year for those in need in our community, and Oakville's Firefighters are proud and humbled to work on this initiative. Donors do not get to hear directly from the charities and recipients, however when we are making deliveries we see the appreciation of caregivers, youth and support workers who work with these families and youth throughout the year. Oakville residents, businesses and community groups stepped up big time, together we were able to distribute gifts for 5250 local children and youth!

"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

We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to the following businesses and community organizations for your overwhelming support this year! On behalf of the families and youth who received gifts this year, thank you!!!
