The Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program matches a child 6 to 17 years of age (Little Sister/Little Brother) with a caring adult (Big Sister/Big Brother) over the age of 18. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, which is built on trust and common interests and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee. There are other ways to volunteer, for example by helping the agency out with a fundraising event.

Nothing can stop us from finding a cure - not even a global pandemic.

There is no question about it, 2020 has been one of the most challenging years we have collectively faced. While it is still filled with uncertainty, JDRF knows that research and support for those living with type one diabetes (T1D) cannot slow down - not even for a second. Our commitment to those living with T1D is stronger than ever and the milestones we’ve reached is because you were by our side.

While our 2020 Annual Chief’s Dinner in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has been cancelled, we continue in our fight to make #TypeOneTypeNone.

Peel Police has been supporting JDRF for over two decades and our 2019 JDRF campaign was the biggest and most successful. With your support, as we shift to an online donation platform, we can again make a difference in the fight to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes.

There continues to be an opportunity for our community to fuel research and improve the lives of those with T1D by providing a donation to JDRF. Simply click on the Donate button below and submit your donation. You will immediately receive a tax receipt at the time that your donation is processed.

Thank you for your trust and your investment in the mission and vision. We are fortunate to have you as supporters. Please consider our request and for continuing to support some of the most vulnerable members of our community. We will not stop until there is a cure!

Toys For Tots Turns 28 Years Young

It all began in 1993 when Peel Regional Police partnered up with Canadian Tire and Salvation Army to create the Toys for Tots campaign. Officers initially collected donations in water jugs to purchase new toys for underprivileged children within the community. Each year we strive to reach more and more children by delivering a message of hope and encouragement to them and their families in a manner which is meaningful and relevant. In 2019 nearly 9,000 families were assisted by the campaign.

On November 12, 2020 we kick off the 28th Annual Toys for Tots campaign and it has grown beyond anything we could have imagined. This year has been a challenging year for all of us. To keep everyone safe, we are encouraging everyone to please visit the Salvation Army website and make an online donation that will go towards children’s toys.

You can also donate by gifting new unwrapped toys, gift cards, cash or Canadian Tire money. You can drop off toys at any of the following locations:

  • Shoppers World - 499 Main St S, Brampton, ON L6Y 1N7 (Bin beside Guest Services, across from Canadian Tire)
  • Erin Mills Town Centre - 5100 Erin Mills Pkwy, Mississauga, ON L5M 4Z5 (Bin inside Entrance A, near Turtle Jacks)
  • Bramalea City Centre - 25 Peel Centre Dr, Brampton, ON L6T 3R5 (Bin inside Curbside Pick-up Mall Entrance, facing Dixie Road)

Please note that due to safety protocols, we will be unable to accept toys at Peel Regional Police facilities.

Constable Jana Marchese and Mrs. Colleen Hawes are the Chairpersons for the 2020 Toys for Tots campaign and they say, “It is an honour and a privilege to be able to have the opportunity to help so many families during Christmas this year. Putting a smile on children’s faces is our priority and we are so excited to have another incredible and successful campaign this year. Peel Region is full of people who want to help, people who care and people who make a difference.”


Make a Monetary or Toy Donation

Toys For Tots 2020 launches on November 12, 2020. For safety reasons we encourage everyone this year to make an online donation. A tax receipt will be generated by the Salvation Army for each donation.

Due to safety protocols, we will be unable to accept toy donations at any of the Peel Regional Police divisions. This season we are working with community partners to set up safe and secure drop-off locations. You can drop off toys at any of the following locations:

  • Shoppers World - 499 Main St S, Brampton, ON L6Y 1N7 (Bin beside Guest Services, across from Canadian Tire)
  • Erin Mills Town Centre - 5100 Erin Mills Pkwy, Mississauga, ON L5M 4Z5 (Bin inside Entrance A, near Turtle Jacks)
  • Bramalea City Centre - 25 Peel Centre Dr, Brampton, ON L6T 3R5 (Bin inside Curbside Pick-up Mall Entrance, facing Dixie Road)

This year children need our help more then ever. From now until December 15 we invite you to participate by giving a monetary online donation or by cheque. Should you require a tax receipt, please make the cheque payable to Salvation Army c/o Toys for Tots, a receipt will be mailed to you by Salvation Army. Please ensure all necessary information for tax purposes is included on the cheque.  Cheques can be mailed directly to: Peel Regional Police, Toys for Tots, 7150 Mississauga Road, Mississauga Ontario, L5N 8M5.
