The Campaign 

Starting from Monday, December 10th, to Saturday, December 22nd, each day the TRPR & Events team along with many volunteers from within the city will be participating in various acts of giving for various non-profit organizations, shelters, and charities in the GTA. The idea for the campaign is to just simply encourage the city coming together to give back and make a difference in a season that revolves around family and friends, gathering, cheer, laughter, warmth, food, and giving. We are organizing various fundraisers beginning this summer until Christmas. The money raised from each fundraiser will be tallied together, divided and donated to each organization at the end of the campaign.

The Charitable Organizations: Red Door Family Shelter, Kol Hope Foundation, Women’s Habitat, Covenant House, Yonge Street Mission, The Redwood Shelter, Scott Mission, 360 Kids, Canadian Red Cross, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Nellies, and The Daily Bread Food Bank.
