Calgary Police Collects a Mountain of Toys


The Calgary Police Service (CPS) has been a sponsor of Toy Mountain for several years, bringing smiles to the faces of many boys and girls. This year they built a gigantic mountain of toys inside their headquarters in Calgary’s North East, which took a large crowd of helpers from CPS, Encana and Lite FM, to bag and load the just under 10,000 toys! Because of the generous support of compassionate Calgarians and the countless hours of toy collection by our sponsors, thousands of children will receive a special gift on Christmas morning!
