Whether you’re a child, or child at heart, there will be entertainment and fun for all ages at Global News’ annual Toy Drive Live.

This is Global News’ 10th year partnering with the Toronto firefighters to help bring joy to families across the GTA.

“If you’re looking to donate this year, we’re still really low on gifts for teens; please bring something by CF Shops at Don Mills tonight for a teen in need,” said Rick Berenz, President of the Toronto Fire Fighters’ Toy Drive.

“With the tremendous continued support from Global News, Spin Master, CF Shops at Don Mills and now a whole slew of Corus brands, I know 2016 will be our biggest and best Toy Drive yet.”

Bring your new, unwrapped toy to CF Shops at Don Mills to take part in the festivities and kick off the Christmas season by helping the less fortunate.

The event starts at 5:00 p.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m. Global News will be broadcasting live between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. with anchors Alan Carter and Farah Nasser.

Also on hand, Susan Hay, Anthony Farnell, Carolyn Mackenzie and Liem Vu will be celebrating the season with a stellar line-up of entertainment.
