Peel Paramedics deliver Christmas joy
Peel's paramedics and other Regional departments including staff from the Call Centre, Information Management and Humans Services contributed to the annual toy and diaper drive.
The paramedic association and service worked together to collect all the donations and delivered it to the Peel Children's Centre, where they were met with big smiles and a lot of gratitude. Hundreds of toys and thousands of diapers filled the foyer at the Peel Children's Centre at 85 Aventura Court in Mississauga.
Peel Children's Centre (PCC) is a fully accredited, charitable, not-for-profit children's mental health centre that has served Peel since 1985. Each year PCC provides 6,800 services free-of-charge for children/youth under age 18, and their families, who are experiencing serious mental health challenges such as aggression, defiance, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, attachment disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and self-harm.
