Bradford residents show their generous spirit in annual toy drive (10 photos)

Bradford residents helped stuff the South Simcoe Police trailer with new, unwrapped toys for children in need over the weekend

Over the weekend, South Simcoe Police hosted their annual 'Stuff a Trailer' for Toy Mountain campaign outside Canadian Tire in Bradford, collecting new, unwrapped gifts for children in need. 

The campaign kicked off earlier this month in collaboration with CTV Barrie with both a virtual command post and two drop-off events. 

This was the first time in two years the Service was able to host an in-person trailer stuffing event, after having to stick to online in 2020 due to the pandemic. 

All donations received will go to Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions who will distribute to charities and organizations servicing those in need. 

"We are fortunate to live and work in very generous, caring communities that always step up to help others," said Chief Andrew Fletcher. "Thank you to our residents and businesses for your support of this campaign."

The next 'Stuff a Trailer' event will take place at Sobeys in Innisfil at 280 Jans Blvd. on Sunday, Dec. 12. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those interested in making a financial donation can do so on the South Simcoe Police website here
