  DRPS Food and Toy Drive Kick-Off

Nov 14, 2017 09:31 ET

The Durham Regional Police Service will officially launch the 29th Annual Food and Toy Drive at Dr. S.J. Phillips Public School in Oshawa.

DRPS will be joined by a group of students from the school to show their support for the drive. Guest speakers will include Chief Paul Martin, CTV News Anchor Ken Shaw and Chief-for-a-Day winner Aruba Kashif. The DRPS musical band "The Heat"
will perform holiday songs and even Santa himself will make an appearance.

The Food and Toy Drive provides families in need in Durham Region with food and toys for the holiday season. Throughout the months of November and December local businesses, organizations and individuals donate food and toys, which are then picked up by volunteers, sorted and distributed to members of the community.

Donations can be dropped off at any DRPS Division, Regional Headquarters in Whitby, or any Fire Station in Oshawa, Whitby, Clarington and Ajax.

Businesses or individuals wishing to make large donations can contact the organizers, including the coordinator Cst. Darryl Rice, at drpft@drps.ca.
