It was that time of year again when families were thinking about the holiday season. There are many families that are less fortunate and struggle to provide their children with an enjoyable Christmas, and some who are simply not able to buy their children a toy. This year the struggle was even greater for more families because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The partnership between the Halton Regional Police Service and the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation was not going to allow COVID-19 to put a headlock on the Miracle on Main toy drive and instead laid the smackdown on the pandemic by raising a record setting $850,418 in combined donations and sponsorships in support of youth, women and families in need living in Halton Region.

Halton Regional Police Service members and the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation volunteers spent an unbelievable amount of time collecting, packing and delivering the donated items to organizations and families in need. The time, commitment, and passion all of these individuals brought to the campaign is unmeasurable. With such dedication, the campaign will be able to support more families in need for years to come!

Approximately 45 businesses and community partners donated to this year’s campaign. The toys and gift cards collected were donated to families in need across the Halton Region and to several Halton community organizations including Salvation Army Chapters, Halton Women’s Place, CMHA, Big Brother’s Big Sister’s, Faith Based organizations, Halton Elementary Schools, just to name a few.

This year $45,000 in combined gift cards and funding was donated to public schools. $20,000 worth of gift cards were presented to 194 students from 41 schools and $25,000 was distributed to public schools in support of initiatives such as mental health, family wellness and technology.

Halton Regional Police Service and the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation would like to thank our volunteers, public schools, media partners, businesses, sponsors, and the community for the incredible support in helping us reach this milestone!  

“A simple gesture of kindness can leave an impression on a child to last a lifetime and that’s what Miracle on Main hopes to achieve each year. Given we were not able to hold a live event again this year due to the pandemic, I am simply blown away by the amazing support from the community and record number of businesses collecting toys and promoting the message of inclusion, “ said Tiger Jeet Singh Jr., President of the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation.

“Community Safety and Well-being is a shared responsibility, and it is great to see so many people and organizations step up to do their part. The success of the Miracle on Main initiative demonstrates what is possible when our community comes together to help others. We are so immensely proud to partner with the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation in such a meaningful campaign each year,” said Deputy Chief Roger Wilkie.

Sergeant Ric Judson stated “Without the support and generosity of our local businesses and community partners, we could not do what we do! It’s inspiring to see a community come together to do amazing things!”
