Yellowknife Christmas Toy Drive Kicks Off

The Yellowknife Christmas Toy Drive kicks off this week with Northwest Tel and the Salvation Army.

Donations will be collected until December 14 at Northwest Tel’s retail center, all of which will support the Salvation Army’s Christmas Hamper Program.

Yellowknife Mayor Heyck says he’s expecting another year of success for this endeavor.

I think Yellowknifers are by nature very generous. Certainly we see that through this effort and many others throughout the community, particularly around this time of year.

Northwestel’s Vice President of Business Markets Paul Gillard said to remember that kids of all ages benefit from this toy drive, as many often focus on gifts for younger children.
