Global News has partnered with the Toronto Fire Fighters for a ninth year in a row to support the annual Fire Fighters’ Toy Drive.
On Friday, Dec. 4, Global News hosted the annual Toy Drive LIVE at CF Shops at Don Mills from 5 to 8 p.m.
The family-friendly event featured a live broadcast by Global News at 5:30pm. Global’s Anchor Alan Carter broadcasted live from the square and was joined by Global News personalities Rosey Edeh, Susan Hay and Chief Meteorologist Anthony Farnell.
The evening culminated with fire fighters collecting over 2000 toys for children in need thanks to the generosity of event goers.
The evening included an official tree lighting ceremony, a meet and mingle with Santa and his friends, holiday music brought to you by The Oakville Children’s Choir, and activities including: face painting, balloon art, an opportunity for kids to try on fire fighter bunker gear and play with Spin Master’s newest toys.
There was also free food and refreshments on hand.
