As in years past, the Timmins Police Service, working in conjunction with Victim’s Services –Timmins and District and the fine people at the Bargain Shop, is set to kick off their annual Christmas toy drive.
The campaign’s success depends heavily on the generosity of local citizens who can spare a few dollars and donate a purchased unwrapped toy that will make its way to the home of children of meager means.
Timmins Police officers organizing the toy drive convey that, ideally and as much as possible, donated toys should be purchased and delivered to the Timmins Police Community Services office at 185 Spruce Street South before December 5th
Additionally, the staff of the Bargain Shop will readily accept any donation of purchased toys from their Algonquin Blvd store so that they will be collected on December 5th
The toy drive will culminate with the Timmins Police Service – Community Services officers running the physical part of the toy drive from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 5th at the Bargain Shop. This will serve as a photo op for local media as well.
Once a final tally has been made, the Timmins Police platoons in consultation with Victim’s Services – Timmins and District, will identify and locate families in need of a little bit of a boost this Christmas.
The Timmins Police is eager to receive donations of unwrapped newly purchased toys so that the less fortunate amongst us can celebrate Christmas with a new treasure or toy.
