The Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) will officially launch the 33rd Annual Food and Toy Drive at Regional Headquarters in Whitby.
The pandemic has brought many challenges during the past 18 months, including a greater need for assistance in our communities. Members of DRPS would like to challenge Durham Region citizens and businesses to make this year’s Food and Toy Drive the biggest ever!
A photo op will be held to kick off this year’s campaign. Interim Chief Todd Rollauer will be joined by Cst. Darryl Rice and the big man himself – Santa!
The Food and Toy Drive provides Durham Region families in need in with food and toys for the holiday season. Throughout the months of November and December local businesses, organizations and individuals donate food and toys, which are then picked up by volunteers, sorted and distributed to members of the community.
Donations can be dropped off at any DRPS Division, Regional Headquarters in Whitby, Clarington Fire Headquarters or any fire station in Oshawa, Whitby and Ajax.
Businesses or individuals wishing to make large donations can contact the organizers, including the coordinator Cst. Darryl Rice, at email@example.com.
When: Wednesday, November 17, 2021
Where: Regional Headquarters, outside of the west doors
Time: 9:00 a.m.
