Colins toy driveLong time friend of Women’s Crisis Services, COLIN, is ready to spread the holiday cheer already! Each holiday season, Colin asks his family, classmates, neighbourhood and community to donate a new toy so that he can deliver them to children in shelters.

Colin sincerely loves to help children have a better holiday season. He knows how much joy a new book, game, or toy, can bring to children who are struggling or healing from abuse. It’s because of Colin, and his dedication and commitment, that our shelves are full throughout the year with toys and presents for the youngest residents of Anselma House. Not only does his Toy Drive fill our holiday needs, but we are able to keep some gifts to give to the children who celebrate birthdays with us during the year. If you are looking to contribute this year, the most HELPFUL and requested items for Anselma House can be found on our website

Colin has taken this special initiative to a new level this year. He has contacted HIS FAVOURITE toy distributors and asked them to come on board with him.

Since Colin’s Toy Drive has grown so much, his friends at CHICOPEE Ski Club have generously offered to host a drop off location for ONE DAY ONLY!

So, if you have purchased a new toy to support COLIN’s Toy Drive, make sure you drop it off at CHICOPEE on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13th between 12:30- 2:00.

Thank you to COLIN and his mother Brooke, who are like elves in a workshop working hard to confirm donations, organize details, and ensure that every child will have something special this holiday season.
