March is almost gone and what a month it has been. As Spring has began the cold weather has been hanging on.
For the previous two months the mild weather has given the homeless confidence the warmer weather would be around the corner.
This is our first entry since our new website was published. Its been a while and we will catch up with the back editions missing. It has been a adventureous few months. There has been a enormous change in the number of homeless people on the streets downtown.
It has been another month of rainy days with not so bad temperatues. Since early in the Fall
our Ministry has been working diligently trying to collect food, water, and clothing for the homeless. Our
efforts were best used buying Tim Hortons Food cards we found, that way the homeless the get food they need firsthand.
Its January and we are now heading out to operate our Winter Outreach Ministry. It has has been a huge winter so far with so many great donations of clothing. We had more than 2500lbs come in since early 2015, with coats, hats, gloves, socks, shoes, winter tops, bottoms, and along with that the Winter Kits and sleeping bags donated by The Bargains group here in Toronto.
Well it was indeed a cold and Wet start to the Fall. We collected many coats and winter wear for
the homeless. There has been a number of closures of shelters in downtown Toronto, clearly
leaving the homeless out in the Cold. Our ministry has been there again this year trying to
provide the essentials for those living on the streets.
