2021-11-14 08:10 PST
Richmond RCMP will be hosting the 7th annual Richmond RCMP Toy Drive in support of the Richmond Christmas fund, another program of Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, on November 20, 2021.
The Toy Drive will take place in the parking lot of Lansdowne Centre located at 5300 No 3 Rd. between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.
Our passion and commitment to the toy drive comes from the need our officers witness everyday in our community, says Chief Superintendent Will Ng, Officer-in-charge Richmond RCMP,
We don’t want any family or child to wake-up Christmas morning to an empty tree which is why we have organized this event for the past 7 years.
Thanks to a generous community donation, Chief Superintendent Ng will be in a dunk tank on the day of the event. Stayed tuned later this week for more details on @RichmondRCMP twitter account.
This continues to be an amazing partnership between Richmond RCMP and Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives, says Ed Gavsie, President and CEO of Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives,
The need in our community is much greater than many people realize. We are so fortunate that the donations for the Toy Drive have increased each year to help meet the needs. We encourage people to come out and support this event so we ensure that everyone can celebrate in the spirit of the holidays.
In addition to toys for kids, there is also a need for books or gifts for the teenage years. Those wishing to make donations before November 20th, can visit any of the advance toy drop locations, located at:
- All Richmond Public Libraries
- West Richmond Community Centre, 9180 No 1 Road
- Richmond RCMP Main Detachment, 11411 No 5 Road
Richmond RCMP along with Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives will be hosting an advance media availability on November 15, 2021 at 11:30 am at Lansdowne Centre.
