Annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive
Toys for Tots is a charitable endeavour that was initiated in 1993 by The Peel Regional Police, in partnership with Canadian Tire and the Salvation Army. During the months of November and December, Police Officers and civilian staff volunteer their time to collect cash, Canadian Tire money, and new unwrapped toys for children in need. Toys for Tots has raised over $1 million dollars to provide thousands of gifts for children at Christmas time. For the last 16 years Rowntree Montessori Schools has been invited to participate in the Toys for Tots launch and we love it! It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about giving back to their communities and helping those less fortunate.
RMS students @Home and in-school, as well as our teachers and staff brought in hundreds of toys for children in our community who are less fortunate, as well as cash and Canadian Tire donations. Moments like this make us so proud of our Rowntree students. Thank you to everyone for your kind and generous donations. We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
