Thank you for your generosity in helping to build Toy Mountain higher than it’s ever been before! Each year, Toy Mountain and the Salvation Army provide toys to over 20,000 children, and this year our goal is to leave no child in Ottawa without a gift to open on Christmas morning.
We are encouraging everyone to stay safe by donating in whatever way you are able and proud to continue the tradition of helping our partners at The Salvation Army bring smiles to the faces of children and teens on Christmas morning.
Taking part has been made safe and easy! You can simply make an online donation, or you may donate a new, unwrapped toy and you will help make this Christmas a special one for girls and boys in need across the community.
If you need toys for your children, please call 2-1-1. They will be able to direct you to one of the city’s Community Resource Centres or they can tell you the best place for you to register as there are many organizations that will register on your behalf.
