With the help and the generous support of our airport community, we were able to bring smiles to many children during this holiday season,” said CBP Calgary Preclearance Port Director Raymond Purser. “We are thankful to the many organizations who supported this drive.”

This is the fourth annual toy drive and the officers felt it was a great way to give back to their community.

“Every year the drive gets bigger,” Purser said. “In 2015 and 2016, the toy drive included donations from only CBP officers but the last two years, the airport community took notice and donations poured in from the larger Calgary Airport community.”

This year’s supporters included Calgary Airport Authority, five airlines, and the Calgary Police Service Airport Unit.

The local charity will donate the toys to area children.
