Brampton - On December 19, Peel Paramedics in ambulances loaded with toys and diapers pulled in to Peel Children’s Centre (PCC). Staff at PCC were happy to unload the many gifts that were donated for the children and youth of the centre.
“This is our third Christmas drive and each year we get bigger and better,” says Chief Peter Dundas, Peel Regional Paramedic Services. “Paramedics know the importance of proper care – particularly the kind of care that Peel Children’s Centre provides.”
Each year Peel Regional Paramedic Services and the Peel Paramedic Association (PPA) partner to host a toy and diaper drive. The donations are from frontline paramedics and support staff as well as Regional staff from the Employee and Business Services department.
“Experiencing this kind of generosity will remind our children and youth that people are thinking about them,” says PCC Executive Director, Humphrey Mitchell. “We’re thankful that the Peel Paramedic Service and Association chose to donate the gifts from their drive to us.”
