MISSISSAUGA, ON – With the holiday season just around the corner, the Mississauga Steelheads will be hosting their annual Toys For Tots game on Friday, November 24 at 7 PM when they host the defending OHL champions the Peterborough Petes. The hockey club is once again proud to work alongside the Peel Regional Police and the Salvation Army to help make a difference for families in need over the holidays. Last season, fans showed their generosity when over 300 toys were donated to the cause.
Constable Taryn Young, Toys for Tots Chair, commented on behalf of the campaign. “It’s kindness and generosity that makes the Toys for Tots program alive. It gives it the fuel that is needed to help us put smiles on children’s faces during Christmas who may not otherwise be so fortunate. Every donation is equally important and counts towards the success of this campaign. The Mississauga Steelheads have supported Toys for Tots and hosted games in our honour for many years. We are very thankful for their continuous support and partnership each year. Your dedication to Toys for Tots is something we cherish.”
