RCMP gets 1,800 kg shipment of toys via Hercules airplane
Officers to distribute toys to children in remote northern communities in Manitoba
Officers have received a massive shipment of more than 1,800 kilograms of donated toys from Toronto for distribution in northern communities.
The project, dubbed Toys for the North, is a partnership between the Canadian Toy Association, the RCMP and the Toronto Zoo. It also seems necessities like diapers and winter wear donated from businesses.
The toys were shipped to Winnipeg in with a little help from the Canadian air force; a CC-130 Hercules flew the shipment into the city.
Now, officers will distribute toys to Manitoba RCMP detachments.
