December 2017

December is gone and we are ever grateful to God for all that he used us to do throughout 2017. 

It has been for the most part very cold, and the number of those living outside has largely increased.

To date we have handed out over 50 blankets and sleeping bags and over 100 food cards for meals.

As the month went on winter clothing began to really come in and by the end of December we had over

200lbs of winter clothing. But the biggest need was winter coats and by the end of the month, coats were the largest item we had,

and that was miraculous.

We backstocked many coats and had almost 100 coats, ready to be handed out during the months ahead.

As the cold alerts were happening -where the city of Toronto announced its too cold for anyone to be living outside

we hit the streets as often as we could to help those in need with winter clothing, food cards, for meals winter hats

gloves, socks, coats, scarves and much more. 

Soon we will be picking up 20 winter survival kits and sleeping bags to get out during the cold days ahead.

August 2017

August was the start of the cooler weather, though it was summer still the average day time high was only about 20 degrees and the nights got pretty chilly. Though it changed rapidly again in the weeks ahead  

the days throughout this month found many of the homeless already in need of heavier clothing. We hit the streets several times with abundant heavy shirts, socks, pants and even some light jackets all thanks 

to a group from Richmond Hill - iYeshua Richmond Hill helping the needy with items they didnt have. We also dropped off clothing to CRC regent park a low income area a location where clothing is always in demand.

Three more times we also saw hotter days nearer to the end of the month. He managed to hit the streets and hand out more vitally needed cold water and food cards for meals for the homeless and some more clothing.

November 2017

Well November has started as October ended, wet and cold. The need for clothing has been vital and many homeless people ask each time they see us for items to wear.

Early in the month we started to receive many large bags of clothing just in time for the cold weather ahead.

By the end of November the clothing donations had jumped to over 300lbs. With many cold days ahead we hit the streets several times with our mobile unit going place to place handing out hats, gloves, scarves, coats, blankets, pants, heavy tops, warm bottoms and the love of Jesus.

By the end of the day along with donations to local shelters we handed out over 200lbs of the clothing we received all on the same day.

November was very cold and the start of December hit some record low temperatues with days heading below -20 in windchill.

The start of December we continued to collect many great warm winter coats {had a huge demand for them too) many had already been handed out. With a need for coats and sleeping bags we started to back stock whatever we could for the month ahead, winter was upon us.

July 2017

Summer has been a long hot affair. To date we handed out over 35 cases of water that was placed in ice to make it a very cold bottle of water for the needy on a hot day.

Already we have seen the effect. Often upon arrival many homeless people would run towards us shouting Water Water.  With many cases of snacks 

and additional food stuffs we hit the streets weekly handing out Food cards, bottles of ice cold water, summer clothhing and much more.

 Special thanks to all who give weekly quarterly and annually to make this vital ministry a benefit to the needy in downtown Toronto.

October 2017

September has passed and we are seeing alot more colder weather. Many street people are in need of items for the colder weather much earlier than last year. 

So far this fall we have handed out over 50 food cards for meals , socks, hats and gloves and many blankets and sleeping bags.

November is shaping up to be a damp and wet month, what every person living on the streets dreads. So with blankets and warm clothing coming in we will be out there helping the homeless in downtown Toronto where ever we can.

June 2017

Well what a Summer it has been. June has come and gone as has the entire Summer and its almost Sept and we have alot to do. June was the wettest on record, for some years. The Homeless have strugglesd to find dry places to live outdoors again this year, with shelters finding no pity for those coming and going.

We have began our water distribution to those living on the streets, throughout this month and the months again. July and August should prove to be record months for the number of homeless people living outside. Already we have found more than double the people living on the streets this years compared to even last year.

With prayers in hand and our supporters behind us we are heading out to do clothing and water outreach for the next few months. So far by this months end we have handed out over 100 bottles and counting.

Sadly though, homelessness has done nothing but increase, and with the current numbers and with the agencies addressing the needs our job is unending.



September 2017

September was a difficult and wet month for Toronto's homeless. The first few weeks of the month saw cooler weather as with August but double the amount of rain.

We hit the streets many days armed with coats and shoes and jackets and even some rain attire to help the homeless wherever we could. 

Many good pairs of shoes, pants and coats were distributed to those in need. We often found some of the basic needs were the hardest for them to get. So we would make sure 

that we would give out food stuffs, food cards and meal cards for food each time we went seeing this was the vital item many requested. 

Over all the month of September was colder to start which meant blankets began to be in demand, but by the middle of the month it was so warm that ice cold water was in demand once again.

By the time the month ended it was so hot that many of the homeless were seeking shelter for heat issues again instead of cold. 

In the months ahead as that colder air moves in, we will be ready to tackle the needs of the homeless. Already we've have started collecting the key winter items soon to be distributed to the homeless.

May 2017

This was an extremely difficult Winter and now Spring for the homeless here in Toronto.

We have been told by Toronto Public Health that 27 Homeless people have died in Toronto due to

Hep C viruses, freezing to death, or illnessnes that are unnamed. Many died just in the last 

3 months alone.

We are committed to assisting Toronto's homeless in many ways. Together with various agencies across the

GTA we have partnered to help stop these terrible occurances from happening.

This past Spring we partnered with churches and groups wanting to reach out to the homeless in a

'Help the Homeless Initiatitive Day" in which we hit the streets with esentials to help those in need.

Together we handed out over 100 sandwiches, over 100 blankets sleeping bags, over 200 healthy snacks

and food cards, clothing and Winter Survival Kits and more to assist those needing items inaccessible.

WIth the heat of summer approaching we will be  heading to Local agencies committed to help the

less fortunate to get water and Summer Survival Kits into the hands of those living in poverty on the streets.

Pray that God uses our efforts and partnerships to stop unnecessary deaths on the streets of Toronto this 

Summer season.
