Marbl Holiday Toy, Coat & Food Drive
The holidays are a time in which we need to remember to be generous in our hearts – for the season, and throughout the year.
A truly generous heart recognizes the connectedness of all humanity, and understands that we all matter to each other, regardless of how different our lives are.
With support from our friends, family and the community at MARBL Toronto, we will be hosting a toy, coat and non perishable food drive over the course of several weeks leading up to Christmas.
Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and global thought leader on food recovery. They work across the supply chain from farm to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill which negatively impacts our environment. Since 1985 they have rescued and delivered more than 155 million pounds of food, preventing over 192 million pounds of greenhouse gas equivalents from entering our atmosphere.
West Neighbourhood House
West Neighbourhood House enables less advantaged individuals, families and groups in the community to gain greater control over their lives and within their community. West Neighbourhood House will work in partnership with the community to promote personal and social change in order to achieve a safe, health and accepting society for all. To this end, they will work with our resources and the strengths of the community.
Since 1982, the Red Door Family Shelter has provided emergency shelter and support for women and children affected by domestic abuse, families experiencing a housing crisis, and refugee claimants with nowhere else to turn. In the early 80’s there was only one other shelter operating in Toronto. Responding to the growing need for shelter space for homeless families, the Red Door was opened in the basement of the WoodGreen United Church by a group of volunteers. They have now grown to be one of the largest family shelters in the city, providing shelter and support to over 350 families every year.
