From 6:00AM-10:00AM, the community showed up at 87 George Street to make the holidays brighter for those affected by food insecurity with monetary and food donations. The bowl of cereal that fills a child’s stomach, the can of soup that warms an elderly person, the lunch that sustains the person working hard to provide for their family; these are all ways your donations help make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you to everyone who donated to help make a difference in our community!

Between local businesses, organizations, and community members, we have collectively donated:

To our Bell Media and CTV Morning Live family – your hard work behind the scenes leading up to the live broadcast and your dedication to this initiative is incredible. The success of Holiday Helpers is due to your contributions, and we cannot thank you enough for all of your contributions to our community.
