The 2014 Campaign kicks off on November 14th. We will be collecting new unwrapped toys at many local parades and department stores across the County of Simcoe this season. The Paramedics of Simcoe County are committed to making it easier for the public to make donations. For corporations or staff Christmas parties, we can make arrangements to have Paramedics come to your business to receive donations. All donations will be distributed to local children and families in need by charitable organizations working in partnership with Simcoe County Paramedic Services. Residents are being asked for their continued generosity and support in helping those in our region most in need celebrate this holiday season. Your donation will spread the spirit of the season, and help give those less fortunate at Christmas this year.
Donations can be made at the County of Simcoe Administration Centre, 1110 Highway 26 in Midhurst during regular business hours and at all Simcoe County Paramedic Stations, where outdoor drop boxes are now available. We will also have a drop off location at Back in Thyme in Coldwater, (www.backinthyme.on.ca/).
Below is a list of events our service will be attending. Please check back on a regular base for an updated list of events.

Thanks for your help,
County of Simcoe
