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

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.
We are very proud to be part of this initiative and are overwhelmed by the generosity of Oakville residents. We would like to thank the following organizations and local businesses for their support last year;
Town of Oakville Staff
Royal Lepage Realty Plus
OTHS Robotics Club
Oakville Soccer Club
Peekaboo Child Care Centre
Toronto Rock Lacrosse Club
Oakville Legion Branch 114

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.
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.
