City of Toronto Toy Drive 2011

Uploaded by thecityoftoronto on 06.12.2011

As you know today we are launching
the 2011 City of Toronto Toy Drive to help
needy children and families across the City.
That's why the City's Toy Drive has added
drop-off boxes in all five Civic Centres,
Metro Hall and right here in City Hall.
This will make it even easier for anyone
to share in the season of giving.
When you drop off an unwrapped
toy or gift card, your donation to the City
of Toronto Toy Drive will make a difference
in the lives of needy children and families in Toronto.
These families and children truly appreciate it.
At this time I'd like to invite some of my staff
and our team of little helpers from
Hester How Daycare, here today to start
adding to the pile of toys. I hope to see
this small pile of gifts grow into huge piles.
It's our goal to help make this holiday season
a festive and memorable one for everyone
in the City of Toronto.
Thank you so much.
