Events Held in 2023
Saturday, December 2 |10 AM – 1 PM | Firefighters Toy Drive, Sobeys High Street
In support of our local fire station, we will be hosting a Firefighter’s Toy Drive. Toys must be new and unwrapped for children ages 0–12. This year, the target age groups for toys are ages 0-3 and 9-12 years of age.
The Calgary Firefighters Toy Association is a volunteer-led organization that accepts new and unwrapped toy donations for their annual Community Kids Christmas event.
A couple of firefighters from McKenzie Towne Station 30 stopped by the toy drive on their way back to the station.
