Holiday Toy Drive

Northwestel is helping northern community groups by collecting toy donations for kids and teens. 

Toy Drive Teddy Bear with Present

Our annual Holiday Toy Drive has wrapped up for another year. Thanks to your generous donations, more than 300 toys and gifts were collected from our retail locations in Whitehorse and Yellowknife.

Thanks once again to our partner organizations, who helped to distribute the gifts to children as part of their respective holiday programs:


Share the Spirit Program

They work closely with Santa Clause and partners to cover over 2000kms and get deliveries to the children & families who need it the most.

Last year, food hampers were provided to 273 Yellowknife households, with 298 children receiving new toys thanks to generous donations from the community.
