Today is the 33rd Annual Toys for Tots Ride in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It will once again be in support of The Salvation Army Christmas Toy Campaign.
Bikers will make their way across the town to deliver a huge amount of toys. Stuffed animals, trucks, dolls and many other toys are among the donations.
The bikers will gather at Thunder Bay Harley-Davidson between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Then they will begin their ride towards the Salvation Army Community & Residential Services at 545 Cumberland St. N.
Toys for Tots is here once again
This is the 33rd Anniversary of Toys for Tots Ride. Each year the event grows and gathers more and more stuffed animals and toys for kids. If you are not able to participate in the ride, donations can be dropped off at Thunder Bay Harley or The Salvation Army on Cumberland St.
“When a family has limited resources, providing gifts is a challenge. With help from the motorcycling community, many children in our city will know the true joy of Christmas through the gift of these toys. It is the joy from knowing someone cares. We are thankful to everyone who supports the Toys for Tots Motorcycle Ride each year bringing children joy at Christmas”, said Major Lori Mitchell, Executive Director, The Salvation Army Community & Residential Services to Tbnewswatch.
The Salvation Army will then distribute all of the toys to families in need. This will be done during the fall. This way families will receive the toys in time for Christmas. It’s a very small effort from the community which brings joy and smiles to people.
