Virtual Toy Drive supported by the

Every year, our good friends at the Northshore Auto Mall host the Christmas Bureau Toy Drive. Families, businesses, and community groups drop off new unwrapped gifts for children and teenagers in need. This year the Toy Drive was virtual rather than in person, in accordance with direction from our provincial health officer.  

The Northshore Auto Mall has generously pledged to match all Toy Drive donations made, up to $10,000.   Toy Drive donations go directly toward purchasing toys and gifts for children and teens, to ensure vulnerable North Shore families are able share in the joy of the holidays with presents under the tree.  To make your donation, please click the button below.
