Rangers provide donation for Friday’s Wawanesa Toy Drive Game

The Wawanesa Insurance Toy Drive in support of the Grand River Hospital Foundation (GRHF) is this Friday!

Since the players will be on the ice looking for a win against the rival London Knights, co-captains Riley Damiani and Greg Meireles along with Jonathan Yantsis wanted to kick-start the collection early.

On the team’s behalf, they made a donation on Wednesday afternoon to Paul Murphy, Sr. Business Development Representative with Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company.

You can also join our players and place a smile on a child’s face this holiday season by donating a new and unwrapped toy or making a cash donation at the game this Friday at 7:30pm.

The Wawanesa event team will be in the concourse collecting toy and cash donations while also selling Wawanesa stuffed bears for $10 – which can then be donated to the toy drive. Some requested donation items include:

  • Colouring, activity, and reading books
  • Crayons, pencil crayons, and markers (ideally in small packages to take home)
  • Bubbles, Crayola Model Magic, and Hasbro Play-Doh
  • Craft kits or board games
  • New small to medium-sized stuffed animals
  • Tactile and fidget toys
  • Small dolls or Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars
  • Lego and Lego Kits
  • Puzzle games
  • Gift cards for emergency needs
  • Gift cards for movies and music for teenage patients (Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Cineplex etc.)

Please note that dollar store toys cannot be accepted due to the low-quality plastics not meeting health and safety standards/regulations of the hospital.

Fans attending the game will also have a chance to win a trip to the CHL Memorial Cup, presented by Kia! Contest rules can be found at
