Halton Police are also grateful for the many other schools, businesses, residents,  communities and many volunteers who helped make this campaign such a success.

In 2013, civilian and uniform members of the Halton Regional Police Service graciously contributed their own time and personal funds to assist in the campaign again.

Halton Police held a “Gift Card Challenge” through individual platoon fundraisers and units which was a huge success raising over $3000 for needy families.  Members helped  collect over $50,000 in cash and toys at Canadian Tire stores and Halton Police Stations.

Chief Steve Tanner remarked, “By working together, as one team; the community, our partners and our own members have clearly shared in the spirit of giving to those less fortunate”.
