The 10th annual Tigh-Na-Mara Toy Drive takes place today (Nov. 28) between 6:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.

People can bring a new, unwrapped gift, or monetary donation to the Tigh-Na-Mara, and receive a free breakfast.

Toys donated will help fill the SOS Toy Shop.

There is also a drive-through breakfast and toy drop off from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Non-perishable food items will also be collected for the local Salvation Army Food Bank.

Last year the Tigh-Na-Mara Toy Drive collected 1,693 toys and gifts for the SOS Christmas program, nearly $4,000 in gift cards and more than $9,000 in cash and cheques.
