Toys for Tots Chief's Message

"Toys for Tots" is a charitable endeavour initiated by the Peel Regional Police in 1993, in partnership with the Salvation Army and Canadian Tire.  During the months of November and December, off-duty members of Peel Regional Police volunteer several hundred hours to collect cash, Canadian Tire money, and new unwrapped toys donated by the public.  The cash and Canadian Tire money is used to purchase toys.  The Salvation Army identifies families experiencing difficulty and distributes the toys received from these donations.

In 2014, we raised over 1.2 million dollars in toys and donations of money.  With the assistance of the Salvation Army and Canadian Tire nearly seven thousand children in the Region of Peel experienced the joy of receiving a Christmas gift. 

On behalf of the men and women of Peel Regional Police, I am grateful for any assistance you might provide and deeply appreciate your participation in this worthy initiative at what truly is a special time of year.

If you require any further information regarding our campaign, or if you would like to initiate a toy drive within your own business or organization, please feel free to contact the Toys for Tots Chairpersons Constables Sarah Patten and Laura Tyrer at (905) 453-2121 extension 4019 or by email
