Trucker’s Toy Drive: this year marks the 31st edition of the 2 Service Battalion Annual Toy Drive. The toy drive is part of a larger fundraising campaign organized by the Petawawa Legion to help families in need during the holiday season. A drop box can be found in the downstairs lounge until December 15. Your toys and non-perishable food item donations will help brighten the holiday season for less fortunate families.
