MISSISSAUGA - On Friday, December 16, Peel Paramedic Service employees arrived at Peel Children’s Centre with two ambulances and two vans filled to the brim with toys and diapers to be donated to the families we serve in Peel.
Peel Region Paramedic Service and the Peel Paramedic Association partner each year to conduct a Christmas toy drive and they donate the toys to a Peel organization committed to children. Toys are donated by staff.
In addition, the $2,500 proceeds from this year’s Peel Paramedic Golf Tournament were used to purchase toys to be donated. For the second consecutive year, Peel Children’s Centre has been the recipient of their kindness.
PCC Executive Director Humphrey Mitchell stated, “We are delighted that the Peel Paramedic Service has selected us again this year to be the recipient of their annual toy drive. The toys and diapers will be placed in the hands of the families we serve at a time when they are needed the most.”
PCC is a fully accredited, charitable, not-for-profit children’s mental health centre that has served Peel since 1985. Each year PCC provides 5,700 services free-of-charge for children/youth under age 18, and their families, who are experiencing serious mental health challenges such as aggression, defiance, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, attachment disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and self-harm.
