The annual Timmins Police – Victim’s Services toy drive is in full swing and recently benefitted from a boost from area schools in terms of donated toys for the less fortunate in our community.
The toy drive is nearing its conclusion for 2022 but there is still time to make a donation of an new unwrapped toy or a cash donation to help families that are struggling financially at this time of year..
Pictured below are Timmins Police officers, and Mikaela Woods from Victim’s Services, who have been “sworn in” as Santa’s little helpers in regards to collecting the donated toys from area schools who have made generous donations to this worthy cause.

And lastly we have Mikaela Woods and Sgt. Carter at Ecole Louis Rheaume collecting gifts from young Ben Ellerton, a generous student encourage by principal Karen Collins.
It goes without saying that the success of this initiative is completely dependent on the charitable dispositions of area school children who contributed to the toy drive.
