We need your help!

The Leaside Toy Drive community initiative is in its 18th year. With the goal of providing a Christmas gift for each child in primary schools in selected Flemingdon and Thorncliffe Park neighborhoods of Toronto. Last year that was over 4000 toys!

We are thrilled to announce that we had exceeded our targeted fundraising goal of $20,000 for 2020. Due to everyones amazing donations, we were able to fulfill our mission and make sure each child received a toy.

We could not have achieved this level of success without our amazing sponsors and donators. 

Thank you to everyone who ensured no child in the four schools went without a toy last Christmas. All the toys were personally delivered to the participating schools. School Principals and teachers then arranged assemblies and holiday festivities to distribute the toys to each child.

For the 2021 season the Leaside Toy Drive has set a goal of providing $20,000 in toys to 4 primary schools in the Flemingdon and Thorncliffe Park neighborhoods.  Every donation makes a difference and helps bring a smile to a child’s face.

Once again things are going to be a little different, as we won’t be able to host the annual Guys Night Out fundraiser.

Like everyone else, we are pivoting again and are pleased to present our own virtual show,  ‘No Pants Required– a night of Adult humour that can be enjoyed alone or shared by couples who simply cannot get enough time together…lol!

Please join us as we team-up with the Nowhere Comedy Club to deliver an entertaining evening of Stand Up comedy on Thursday, December 2rd from 8 – 9:30PM. As always, the Leaside Toy Drive event will include a free draw and items to be auctioned!

Thank you for being a part of the Leaside Toy Drive fundraising journey


Every little bit helps!  Please consider making a donation to our gofundme page to help The Leaside Toy Drive with fundraising.  100% of proceeds go to purchasing gift for the schools.   


Every year, many gracious local businesses and individuals donate products and services for the live, silent and online auction.  These donations are integral in our fundraising process and so appreciated.
