Holiday Toy Drive
Northwestel is helping northern community groups by collecting toy donations for kids and teens.
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
Share the Spirit Yukon has grown in the last three years to become the biggest geographic Holiday support program in Canada covering communities across the Yukon Territory. They work closely with Santa Clause and partners to cover over 2000kms and get deliveries to the children & families who need it the most.
The Whitehorse Firefighters Charitable Society, established in 2014 and comprised of the 31 professional members of the Whitehorse Firefighters Association, is driven by our desire to support our community not just in the crises of life but through the longer-term needs we see all around us, with a special focus on the children, youth and families of Whitehorse.
