Cops for Cancer
Police officers across the province provide a leadership role in organizing Cops for Cancer events by involving the community in other fundraising and cancer awareness activities. U of T Scarborough Campus Police began hosting annual local events in 1999. To date the UTSC Community has contributed over $ 50,000 to this worthy cause. Local Police Officers, Staff, Students and Faculty gather pledges from co-workers, friends and family to support this great cause. In 2010 the UTSC Campus Community Police resumed its Cops For Cancer campaign, setting a goal of raising $3,000 for this very worthwhile charity. We are pleased to announce that we exceeding this goal by raising more than $5,000.

Chum/City Christmas Wish Toy Drive
Each Christmas the UTSC Police collect new unwrapped toys in support of the CHUM City Christmas Wish toy drive. All collected toys are distributed to children throughout Toronto, in an attempt to ensure that every child will have a present to open at this festive time of year. A Collection box will be placed in the Police office foyer in early December and toys may be dropped off at the UTSC Campus Police & Parking Services Office SW 304 until the Friday before Christmas. Thanks to the generosity and assistance of the UTSC community, we were able to collect 220 toys in 2010, our 16th year of involvement.
