The big toy drive: The Sainte-Thérèse firefighters in action

On December 4th and 5th, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Teresian families are invited to bring toys that are no longer needed, but which are still in good condition, at the Sainte-Thérèse barracks (200, boul. Ducharme), as part of the large toy drive of the Sainte-Thérèse Firefighters Association.

The toys collected will be donated to the Dépanne-Tout organization, which has supported the community for more than 25 years. All items received will be inspected, cleaned, and repaired as needed at the organization’s toy recycling shop. The refreshed toys will be sold at low prices and the profits generated will be redistributed to local organizations. It is important to note that for hygienic reasons, plush or fabric toys, such as stuffed animals, are not accepted.

“We are proud of this fundraiser which allows us to give back to the community! I invite children to give their toys a second life by bringing them to the fire station. As the holidays approach, this little gesture promises to make people happy, since other young people will be able to benefit in turn! », said the mayor of Sainte-Thérèse, Mr. Christian Charron.

To thank the citizens for their generosity, coffee and hot chocolate will be served on site. In addition, it will be possible to visit the installations of the barracks! (The vaccination passport will not be required).
