Northwestel is supporting community groups in the North with a holiday toy drive.
Our annual Toy Drive wrapped up December 12th in Yellowknife and Whitehorse. Thanks to your generous donations, more than 450 northern kids are receiving gifts this Christmas.
If you missed the Toy Drive, you can still help - visit our partners at The Salvation Army Yellowknife or the Whitehorse Firefighters Charitable Society to lend your support.
After December 12th, the following organizations will begin giving out the toys to children as part of their holiday programs.
Share the Spirit Program
Share the Spirit Yukon has grown in the last three years to become the biggest geographic Holiday support program in Canada covering communities across the Yukon Territory. They work closely with Santa Clause and partners to cover over 2000kms and get deliveries to the children & families who need it the most.
The Whitehorse Firefighters Charitable Society, established in 2014 and comprised of the 31 professional members of the Whitehorse Firefighters Association, is driven by our desire to support our community not just in the crises of life but through the longer-term needs we see all around us, with a special focus on the children, youth and families of Whitehorse.
