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.

Toys for Tots

Toys For Tots Logo

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 2018 nearly 9,000 families were assisted by the campaign.

On November 13th we kick off the 27th annual Toys for Tots campaign and it has grown beyond anything we could have imagined. From now until December 15 we invite you to participate by donating new, unwrapped toys, gift cards, cash or Canadian Tire money to any Peel Regional Police station.

Constable Emily Rogers is the Chairperson for the 2019 Toys for Tots campaign and she says, “It is such a wonderful opportunity to be able to give the gift of Christmas to so many children and families in need. The generosity within Peel Region is incredible and I can’t wait to have another successful campaign this year.”
