This year’s Help Santa Toy Parade Just Days Away!

This year’s Ottawa Help Santa Toy parade happens on Saturday, November 18th, starting at 11 AM. Fire fighters will be collecting NEW toys and cash donations along the route (see the map below).

Unfortunately, used toys of any kind will not be accepted, due to the number of unsuitable items that have been received in past years. Look for Jewel 985 at this year’s parade, aboard a horse drawn wagon from John Cundell Stables in the ByWard Market.

If you can’t make it to the parade, NEW and used toys can be still be dropped off at any of the Salvation Army Thrift Stores. Parade organizers will also accept new toys at any Ottawa Fire Station up until mid December.
