It’s that time of year again when families begin to think about the upcoming holiday season. There are many families within the Halton Region 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 Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation (TJSF) believe the struggle could be even greater for more families.
TJSF and Halton Regional Police Service have commenced the annual Miracle on Main Street (formerly Toys for Tots) Christmas donation drive. This is the fourth year of the merger between the two entities to collect and distribute funds and toys to families in need throughout the Halton Region. The merger has allowed the organizations to enhance the annual donation drives and to work collaboratively to help more families in need than ever before. 100% of the donations go back into the Halton community!
The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation is a Milton-based charity started by wrestling legends, humanitarians, and philanthropists; Tiger Jeet Singh and his son Tiger Ali Singh. For the last twelve years, the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation has organized the “Miracle on Main Street” event which has raised millions of dollars through donations and sponsorships for children and families in need who live in our Region, as well as purchase thousands of toys for children
admitted over the holidays at McMaster Children’s Hospital and SickKids. Since 1999 the Halton Regional Police Service have supported families through Toys for Tots and Miracle on Main Street campaigns. All donations collected are distributed to Halton schools, community agencies and families.
On Tuesday November 23rd at 1pm they hosted the Miracle on Main Street event launch at Troy’s Diner located at 295 Main Street East in Milton. The event was MCed by Mike Cluett a long standing volunteer for the organization and attended by local dignitaries and community supporters. This provided an opportunity to hear from members of the Halton Police and Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation to hear how this amazing partnership allowed them to help more children and families over the holiday season than ever before!
