Holiday Toy Drive



The Smith Proulx Team, along with Santa Panda, organized a successful Toy Drive this holiday season in West Toronto!

We teamed up with the Toronto Fire Fighters and donated all the toys we collected to the Toronto Fire Fighters’ Annual Toy Drive,

which distributes them to families in need. We wanted to find a way to make a small difference to those who need it during the holidays, especially during these difficult times.

On Tuesday, December the 15th and Thursday, December 17th , local residents in the Bloor West, Junction, High Park, and Swansea neighbourhoods signed up to have Santa Panda—yes, that’s Panda dressed as Santa!—come to their house and pick up toys for donation. On these two days, Renee Proulx adopted her alter ego, Panda, who wore a Santa suit, to share a little joy with the generous residents who made toy donations. Santa Panda would pop in and out of a toy drive cargo van as we went from house to house, collecting donations. West Toronto residents were at their doorstep to say a nice hello to Santa Panda and take a quick, socially distanced photo.


On Saturday, December 19th , the Smith Proulx Team and Santa Panda set up a station at the Bloor West Village Re/Max office where people could come by at their convenience and drop off the toys. Santa Panda was there, dancing to Christmas songs and sharing holiday joy with the Bloor West Village residents as they passed by on the street or dropped by with toys. The West Toronto residents were so kind and generous with their donations!  We received a wide variety of really amazing toys, suitable for all ages, that undoubtedly made Christmas for families in need just a little bit brighter.

We are proud to announce that we collected over 300 toys to donate to the Toronto Fire Fighters’ Annual Toy Drive! We want to thank all our friends and neighbours in the Bloor West Village, Junction, High Park, and Swansea neighbourhoods who participated and kindly donated to the toy drive. We couldn’t have done it without you!
