From 6:00AM-9:00AM, 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, you 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.
