West End X SickKids Foundation Toy and Game Fund

West End X SickKids Foundation Toy and Game FundHello West End Family! With Toronto moving to Grey Zone LOCK DOWN once again, we can easily say that 2020 has been a difficult and challenging year.

As we head into the holidays, families everywhere are struggling to make plans appropriate for the pandemic. How do we celebrate when we can’t be together as usual?

Family traditions that kids look forward to – like a shopping trip, a holiday party with friends or a visit with grandparents – have all been put to a halt.

The more predictability we can create in this uncertain time, the better it is for everyone involved, especially for kids.

With this notion in mind, instead of a traditional (physical) toy drive, the West End AC Family has started an initiative to raise money to donate to the SickKIDS Foundation Toy and Game Fund to ensure that the children at SickKids can count on receiving new toys over the holidays, as they always look forward to and so deserve.

A West End AC Go Fund Me page has been created to raise money to enable the Child Life team at the hospital to purchase toys, not only around the holidays, but throughout the year. These toys and games are used primarily for the purpose of recreation and therapeutic play amongst the children at the hospital.

Please join us to rekindle the holiday spirit for the rest of 2020 and make a positive impact on these children’s and their families’ lives.

Thanking you in advance.
