Thank You for supporting our Toy Drive
My name is Jason Predie and I am a paramedic and volunteer firefighter with the Town of Parry Sound. For the past nine years, Parry Sound EMS paramedics and ACS dispatchers have held an annual Christmas toy drive for local kids in need.
Together with your support, we have helped to ensure that over 2500 children have had the joy of waking up Christmas morning to find a toy under their tree. In addition, the Parry Sound Fire Department’s food drives have brought in over 25 tonnes of food over the past nine years to fill our local food banks with enough to feed hundreds of families in need.
