Every year, the Parkdale Community Food Bank hosts our annual Toy Drive & Market. In 2021, we served over 1000 children, and were able to provide each child with 3 toys, 1 stocking stuffer and 1 book. The support we were able to provide to our community through the event is all thanks to the generosity of our community. This year, the Toy Market will operate at the Parkdale Hall, on December 22nd and 23rd. Our 2022 Toy Drive will run from November 22nd - December 21st. We only accept donations of new, unused & unwrapped toys.
Aligned with the mission of the Parkdale Community Food Bank, it is our mandate to ensure that the Toy Drive & Market is inclusive and barrier free. All families struggling to afford gifts for their children this holiday season are welcome to attend.
