CP24 CHUM CHRISTMAS WISH will broadcast live starting at 12 noon at York Memorial CI on December 4, 2018.  Please note that 2018  will mark the 52nd Annual CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish.

They will be  speaking with several teachers, students and staff who were involved in the collection and giving back to the community. Santa and his helpers will be here that day collecting donations. It is not just about how many toys are raised but about the spirit of giving! The smallest contribution can make a difference!

In anticipation of the holiday season, YMCI is organizing a toy drive for the CP 24/CHUM Christmas Wish.  We are also asking our business and community partners to donate toys to our most  needy YMCI families. Here are some gift ideas to get you started.

Gift Ideas

Children in the age groups below are sometimes difficult to shop for and often overlooked by donors. Please use these helpful tips to help give a kid a Christmas.

Infants & Babies

  • Make sure the toy is age appropriate by the manufacturer’s age rating (0 – 6 months) and (3 months+) are in highest demand:
  • No ‘button’ eyes or noses – features must be soft and sewn on securely
  • Package should say ‘Infant Friendly’ or ‘Baby’s First’, ‘Infantino’, etc.
  • Developmental toys (Fisher Price, Baby Einstein, Playskool, Leap Frog Baby)
  • No small parts

Children Ages 10 to 18 Years Old

  • Gift cards in the $25-$30 value range would be best (Hudson's Bay, WalMart, Cineplex, Gap, Stitches, Chapters, Coles, Old Navy, Garage, Blue Notes, La Senza, etc.)
  • Electronic games, age-appropriate board
  • Sports equipment (soccer, basketball, football, hockey, skateboards, scooters, etc.)
  • Roller blades, ice skates, snow boards
  • Bicycle helmets
  • Cosmetics (age appropriate: 16 – 18 years old)
  • Personal care and grooming gift packs
  • Hair products and accessories (curling irons, blow dryers, shavers, beard groomers, etc.)
  • Diaries, journals
  • Creative and craft supplies
  • Purses, knapsacks/backpacks
