Each year since 2016, The Turk Foundation has hosted a local toy drive for organizations who require the community's assistance in helping them make Christmas for the children within their establishment, a happy one. This toy drive has demonstrated to be an awesome event in the community over the years. What started out as an idea has flourished into an annual community event that we look forward to hosting year after year, with the help of businesses. Each year, the toy drive commences on November 2nd and runs thru December 20th.
We are currently accepting new and unused toys, clothes and monitory donations. Ages varying from 1-18 years of age. Speaking of teenagers, we have noticed a pronounced requirement for items for all teenagers, both male and female aged 13-18. Over the past years, this age group did not recieve many donations, so if you wanted to keep that in mind, we ask you to please do so. We would love to see them catered to as well. If you would like to donate a monitory donation please do so at turkfoundation.ca.
The Turk Foundation provides an environment where youth from The Greater Toronto Area residing in neighbourhoods that make them more susceptible to gun and gang violence can learn and practice leadership skills and focus on ethical decision making. The Turk Foundation is able to reach at-risk youth and offer much needed care and support from the team members that have lived this lifestyle and know first hand what the consequences are from poor decision making being a youth with no role models, guidance or anyone to turn to for assistance
