Vancouver Firefighters feel that every child should be able to enjoy the holidays, and know that toys always bring a smile to their faces, especially on Christmas morning. Through the generosity of the Lloyd & Elsie Campbell Foundation, the Vancouver Firefighter Charities has been named among other provincial charity organizations, as the recipient of a legacy fund donation specifically dedicated to providing children with toys during the holidays. This fund is administered by the Vancouver Foundation, which helps donors give to, and meet, their charitable goals.
In partnership with local Vancouver businesses, the Vancouver Firefighter Charities is now able to provide a much-needed yearly service to those children throughout Vancouver who might not otherwise be able to enjoy Christmas gifts. Toys are sourced from various independent stores within the city and delivered to children throughout the Lower Mainland.
In 2021, Vancouver Firefighters Charities donated $100,000 worth of toys for local families in need this Christmas! Special thanks to our off-duty Vancouver Firefighters stacking toys and building an impressive toy mountain!
Thank you again to the Lloyd & Elsie Campbell Foundation gift for helping us make the season bright for many children!
Throughout the pandemic off-duty Vancouver Firefighters donated over $200,000 worth of toys for in-need families. Through our efforts we hosted multiple toy-drives with our community-partner London Drugs.
