Simcoe County Paramedics Dig Out Their Elf Hats

Their annual Toy Drive is underway

Watch for Simcoe County Paramedics at Santa Claus Parades around the region. Greg Sharpe, the lead elf in this effort, notes every toy they collect and every dollar and food item they bring in, stays in the community in which it’s collected…

In the 14 years since this time drive began 67 thousand toys have been collected along with 20thousand pounds of food and 126 thousand dollars in cash and gift cards. In addition to giving at various Santa Claus parades (see below) donations can be dropped off at paramedic stations around the country.
