Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive

Who are we, & what we do?

The Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive is a non-profit registered charity working with corporate partners to help pre-screened families in need.

Generous donations from corporate friends provide us with a Toy Warehouse (including the cost of utilities!) Over the past several years with help from the community, we have helped thousands of families celebrate Christmas each year. The Toy Drive is run exclusively through volunteer efforts, including those of both active and retired Fire Fighters. Our sincere thanks to our partners Global News, Mercedes-Benz Toronto Retail Group and Morguard Properties and to all who make this possible.
