My family and I have started a community support program called @communityloves.toronto. Our mission is simple: Torontonians helping one another.
We are kicking off our first event in collaboration with a Toronto celebrity chef to provide 1,500 hot meals and essentials care kits to those in need over the holidays. We will be delivering these items to parks, encampments, shelters and community centres across the city.
Please see a full breakdown of what’s to be provided:
Hot chill lunch with a dessert and warm drink
1500 bowls of chili (provided)
1500 dinner rolls (provided)
1500 Warm drinks in reusable mugs
Essentials care kits
1500 PPE kits
1500 first aid kits
1500 rolls of toilet paper
1500 packs of wipes
1500 shampoo/conditioner kits
1500 bars of soap or liquid soap
1500 body creams
1500 labels and pens
The “Everything Drive” is a secondary and ongoing event that will provide donated and purchased non-perishables, essentials kits, toys, PPE, winter clothing and lightly used or new bedding/camping gear distributed in partnership with local food banks and shelters as well as pop-up drives in parks with large homeless populations.
These events are made possible from monetary donations that will be used to purchase the items listed above as well as though the donations from our curbside pick up program.
All proceeds generated through this campaign will be used to feed, shelter and warm our neighbours in need. We are small but hope to make a big impact and in order to do so, we need the help of our community.
We chose Go Fund Me so that those who choose to donate can receive a tax receipt. We will be posting a financial report on our website www.communityloves.ca as we collect and disperse funds in order to maintain trust and transparency.
If you are looking for other ways to get involved, please send us an email at [email redacted] or fill out a form on our website.
We thank you in advance for your support, we hope to do some good together!
