Firefighters Collecting Toys At Santa Claus Parade in Gravenhurst
The Gravenhurst Santa Claus Parade is set to go on Saturday November 24th, and firefighters will be leading off the parade once again, with their 3rd annual Toy Drive in support of Santa and the Salvation Army.
Danielle Ryan, a Gravenhurst firefighter who is spearheading the departments toy drive says that “All kids need to have a present under their tree on Christmas morning, so we’re collecting new, unwrapped toys along the parade route. The Salvation Army will be distributing the toys later as part of their annual Christmas efforts.”
Firefighters will also be out in advance of the parade this year collecting toys. On Thursday November 15th, from 6-8pm, they’ll be at Stedman’s and then at both the Canadian Tire and Stedmans Stores on Saturday November 17th, to give people who can’t attend the parade the opportunity to participate in this year’s toy drive.
