Charity: Indian and Métis Friendship Centre's Christmas toy drive

How they're sharing the Christmas Spirit: "(My wife Terry and I) are sharing the Christmas spirit this year by helping those who are less fortunate, less privileged, by donating to the IMFC's toy drive. We find there's a large need for underprivileged kids in this community to receive gifts at Christmas time, and the IMFC runs an extremely good program for inner-city kids. Every year, they give about 500 gifts to children in the North End and... many of them get their only gift of that year at that event."

How you can help spread the Christmas spirit: Drop a new, unwrapped gift at Winnipeg Police Service centres across the city by the end of business today. They're at 151 Princess St., 210 Lyle St., 260 Hartford St., 1750 Dugald Rd., 1400 Henderson Hwy., 1086 St. Mary's Rd., and 1350 Pembina Hwy. Nancy Flett, the IMFC's assistant executive director, said they still need donations, so drop by today so hundreds of kids can celebrate the joy of receiving a present.

My Christmas wish: "I always believe in community service and my wish is that more people... with privilege, would contribute to serving the community on a volunteer basis, on a personal level, and to help those with lesser opportunities enjoy and partake in the positive holiday spirit.
