A group of people holding up toys

Thank you for making the 2016 Holiday Heroes on of our most successful years to date.

Since the launch of Holiday Heroes in 2008, York Regional Police has raised more than $1 million in monetary donations, new toys, new children's clothing and food.  As always, all donations raised in York Region, stay in York Region!  These goals could never have been achieved without the generosity and support from the public! 

This year's campaign runs from November 14 to December 15, 2017 and 100 per cent of donations directly supported families from our community who are in need. Our collaborative efforts will provided holiday cheer to the thousands of families who registered for assistance through the local Salvation Army programs and Victim Services of York Region.

For information about the Holiday Heroes Food and Toy Drive, please email

Photo Gallery: 2016 Holiday Heroes will appear here on the public site.
