If you live in Toronto – or if you live near Toronto – I’m extending an invitation.
In Share A Christmas, we deliver food and toys to hundreds of families in Toronto’s East End. Families apply to receive the food baskets and toys, and they come all faiths and walks of life. We’ve delivered food to community housing neighbourhoods, but also to addresses where families have fallen on bad luck, or worse. For my kids, it is always an eye-opener, and it always leaves a big (and positive) impression on them. You get rewarded in a special way, too.
C’mon by. You – and we – will be glad you did.
Details are here. We converge on Centre 55 at 97 Main Street, between Kingston Road and Gerrard, at about 4 p.m. We get food – and, if there are kids in the family, toys too – and start delivering right away. It’s an amazing program, and one that helped more than 600 families last year.
Hope to see you there.
