As the countdown begins to Christmas Eve, GTMAA volunteers scoured dozens of city fire halls to collect toys generously donated by the public to Toronto fire stations. The toys were delivered to the Toronto Firefighters Toy Drive warehouse in Scarborough. Support 7 was filled to brim with toys of all types.
At every fire hall the truck visited, firefighters were there to help us fill up the truck.
Some last-minute quality inspections were done to this bike...
... before it too was loaded into Support 7 for the toy drive.
We had some help with guarding the toys as they were loaded...
While we were at station 143 in North York, FITS Toronto dropped by to donate a car full of sports equipment to the drive.
It was nearly dark when the truck pulled into the warehouse for the final drop off, where the toys will be sorted and delivered to children across the city for Christmas.
Santa was out, unfortunately
The toys we unloaded at the warehouse came in all sizes. Both small...
There are still many more donated toys to be collected, and volunteers who are available will be making more trips to fire halls later this week for more pickups.
