Emma’s Toy Drive Drop Off LocationDec 12nd, 2017
We are excited to announce, Guelph Nissan is now a drop off location for Emma’s Toy Drive!
Emma’s Toy Drive is a local Guelph-Ontario based Christmas charity. They collect toys and gifts annually to give to the Women In Crisis Shelters of Guelph-Wellington County.
It all started 15 years ago when Emma was 8 years old. After reading a sad book, it made her realize not all children get gifts on Christmas. This was shocking to her as an 8 year old and so she took action. It started small, she began caroling around her neighborhood and collecting donations. She was able to buy three toys and donated them to the toy drive at Guelph’s Stone Road Mall. The next year, she wanted to go bigger so she stated her own toy drive. Over they years, Emma has collected over 22,000 new toys/gifts to the women in crisis shelters of Guelph and Wellington County.
