Holiday Heroes Food and Toy Drive

A big group of citizens and officers lined up with cart loads of toys

Since the launch of Holiday Heroes in 2008, York Regional Police has raised more than $1.2 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 ran from November 14 to December 15, 2017 and 100 per cent of donations directly supported families from our community who were in need. Our collaborative efforts provided holiday cheer to the thousands of families who registered for assistance through the local Salvation Army programs and Victim Services of York Region.

Photo Gallery: Holiday Heroes 2017 will appear here on the public site.


The success of our Holiday Heroes program would not happen without the support of our sponsors. Thanks to the following organizations, schools and businesses for your support the 2017 Holiday Heroes Toy and Food Drive.
