IHPG Toy Drive 2018!

Max Rady College of Medicine’s Indigenous Health Promotions Interest Group (IHPG) is hosting their 3rd annual Holiday Toy Drive!

We invite you to participate in collecting toys and cash donations for Niji Mahkwa School in Winnipeg’s Point Douglas community.

Each year Niji Mahkwa school hosts a Breakfast with Santa for their students, where children get to eat a good healthy pancake breakfast, meet Santa, take photos and get a goody bag along with their own special gift to open.

They have approximately 390 students, therefore, we are hoping to fundraise a total amount of $8,000.00 in cash and toys! All donated money will be used to buy a $20 gift for every child!


If you wish to donate a toy we are looking for: NEW UNOPENED/UNWRAPPED toys of a value of $20 for ages 5-13 years old (Nursery to grade 8).

FOR PRETEEN/TEENAGERS GRADES 5 TO GRADE 8: Gift ideas can include: packages of self-care items (deodorant, body spray, shower gel, shampoo/conditioner, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush/comb sets and socks) mittens, toque sets etc.

FOR YOUNGER AGES GRADES NURSERY TO GRADE 4: Gift ideas include: Lego, playsets, drawing sets (crayons/pencils/markers/sketchbooks), dolls, cars, colouring books, books, mittens and toque sets etc.

Donation sites are 260 Brodie or at Ongomiizwin S206 Medical Services Building. The collection will end December 12th.
