2019 Media Day @ Toy Mountain


Members of the Ottawa Fire busily unload their wagon of gifts and bring them into the Toy Centre at 350 Sparks Street 

Many tens of volunteers sorted and bagged presents on Dec. 5 at the Toy Centre at 350 Sparks Street for thousands of families. The family members come to the centre before Christmas to pick up large plastic bags of Christmas gifts for the approximate 25,000 children registered with Toy Mountain.

Media Day at Toy Mountain meant that a news crew from CTV came to spend the day helping with the gift packing and sorting. They covered the event which they co-sponsor with the Salvation Army's Ottawa Booth Centre.
