Due to the recent typhoon that struck the Philippines, a 14 Division Officer, who wishes to remain anonymous, approached Supt. Mario Di Tommaso and offered to match any money collected (to a maximum of $1,000) for the Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund.

Collection jars were set up in the station for five weeks, raising $752. The generous anonymous member of 14 Division donated the entire $1,000 for a total donation of $1,752. for the Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund. The Federal Government will match the donation made to the Canadian Red Cross, for a total donation of $3,504.

Constables Gord Reid and Henry Dyck attended the Canadian Red Cross on Friday, December 20, 2013, on behalf of the members of 14 Division, to make a cheque presentation to the Manager of Major Gifts Gordon Moir.

Supt. Di Tommaso thanked the members of 14 Division for their generosity, kindness and humanity.

The attached photo commemorates the donation and the kindness of the members of 14 Division for the weary and desperate people of the Philippines.
