There was a huge response to the toy drive in Steinbach which saw over a thousand toys come in for Community Christmas.

Toys Days took place at Canadian Tire where toy and cash donations were accepted to help fill hampers and cover the cost of food.

Donations from Day 2 of the Toy Drive.

Around 1,100 toys were donated at the drive thru drop-off location and hamper coordinator Carolyn Peters says this goes a long way in helping to fill over a thousand hamper requests.

Even after Toys Days wrapped up, people continued to make donations at Canadian Tire and those toys have all made it to the toy distribution centre where volunteers sort the gifts into the different age and gender categories.
