SSLC Toronto Campus’ holiday fundraiser was a success! We raised $134 for Youth Without Shelter, a community resource for young people facing homelessness. They provide emergency housing, warm meals, and educational programs to youth across the city. Their work is especially vital this year because Toronto has seen record low temperatures, so youth on the streets were forced indoors by the danger of hypothermia and frostbite.
We raised money by selling “candygrams” (personalized messages attached to candy canes). Students were invited to purchase the candygrams and write notes to their friends and school staff, and then they were delivered to recipients by Santa himself! Toronto Campus is grateful to the staff and students who contributed, and we look forward to supporting some other local causes soon!
