Calling all Holiday Elves!

We hope you are having a fabulous Holiday Season so far, and are enjoying quality time with your loved ones.

We want to take a quick break from your holiday shopping to bring up a very important cause that is near & dear to our hearts. It is always important to remember those less fortunate during this time of year, where it is so easy to get wrapped up in our own shopping. Sometimes we need a reminder to stop and be grateful for all that we have and think about ways we can make a positive impact in our own communities, too.

This year, we want to bring a special focus to children – it is our mission to make an impact and help bring joy to kids who otherwise might not be so fortunate as to be receiving gifts under their tree this year, with the help of The Toronto Firefighters Toy Drive. This is a cause that is close to our hearts and we really want to help make a difference in the lives of children this holiday season. 

The Toronto Firefighters Toy Drive is a non-profit charity that works to help children & families in need. They collect new, unopened toys via generous donations from the community that help thousands of families celebrate the holidays each year. It is run exclusively through the help of volunteers, including both active & retired Firefighters.
