Richmond RCMP want to send out a heart felt thanks to all those who donated to the 7th annual Richmond RCMP Toy Drive in support of the Richmond Christmas Fund, another program of Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives.
Thanks to your generosity, we raised $ 22,400.00 in cash and collected 1.5 tons of toys. This is a significant increase of toy donations from the community and cash donations almost doubled thanks to the $ 10,000.00 donation for the dunk tank.
The outpouring of generosity from people who live in the City of Richmond is truly inspiring, says Chief Superintendent Will Ng, Officer-in-charge of Richmond RCMP,
It means so much to me, the officers who organize this event and our detachment as a whole, to know that our commitment and passion for such a worthy cause is shared by our community.
We are so fortunate that the donations for the Toy Drive continue to grow each year because so does the need within our community, says Ed Gavsie, President and CEO of Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives,
We are so pleased to be able to continue to partner with the Richmond RCMP. After watching C/Supt Ng go into the dunk tank, I know just what lengths they are willing to go to make this event a success.
Those still wishing to make donations can do so until November 30th by visiting any of these toy drop locations:
- All Richmond Public Libraries
- The West Richmond Community Centre, 9180 No 1 Road
- The Richmond RCMP Main Detachment, 11411 No 5 Road
Thank you once again, and happy holidays.
