Iqaluit firefighters hold holiday toy drive

Iqaluit firefighters held their Pack the Back toy drive Saturday, gathering donations for the Angel Tree program in front of Northmart and Arctic Ventures. Assistant fire chief Steve McGean said nearly $800 was collected on top of a pile of toys, which will be given to children in need. McGean said the fire department typically does this yearly, but last year the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the event from happening. “So, we were more than happy to answer the call this year,” he wrote in an email, where he also thanked the public for its support over the weekend.
