Did you know?
“5,253 homeless people are sleeping outdoors and in emergency shelters, Violence Against Women shelters, and in health and correctional facilities in Toronto on the night of April 17, 2013.”
This past May, a group of young adults went to Honduras. We served a rehabilitation centre for malnourished children, as well as hired professional contractors from their local community to help us with construction. This time, we reached out closer to home
This past Saturday, another group of young adults from all over Greater Toronto Area teamed up and helped out at a men’s shelter right in our own backyard. One group worked at the soup kitchen, feeding the residence and the community, while another group helped clean-up at the shelter and sort out donated clothes. These young adults woke up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning, to help the others in need.
Overall, a lot was accomplished and at least for myself, I could definitely come back there and share my time again.
For those of you who are interesting in joining our upcoming activities or have an idea of where we can reach out to, please contact us!
