The 2010 Durham Regional Police Service Food and Toy Drive has just under two weeks left to meet the needs of families in the Durham Region.
On Dec. 10, we received over $15,000 worth of donations from Darlington Nuclear Power Plant. Members of the Darlington plant brought in food, toys and made monetary donations. Kim Doyle-Moloney, from OPG Business Services, and a team of volunteers hit the stores with approximately $10,000 in donations to purchase items for the drive.
Even with their generous donation, we are still in dire need of gifts for children over the age of 12, both boys and girls, and for infants, 0 to 12 months. Some great ideas for the teenagers are: gift cards (from local malls, movies, book stores), sporting goods, hair accessories, make up, bath gels, cameras (with pre-paid developing), MP3 players, etc. For infants; teething rings, sensory toys, infant books and musical toys.
If you would like to help out, please bring unwrapped toys or food to any police station in Durham Region, any fire hall in Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax or Clarington and to participating stores prior to Dec. 22nd.
Priority is always given to needy families in Durham Region. If your family is in need of food or toys this holiday season, please contact a local agency or church and they will see we get your information.
To contact a member of our Food and Toy Drive, please call (905) 721-2999.
Thanks again to those of you who have already generously donated to the Drive.
