Week 2 –
There is so much to rejoice in Toronto last Thanksgiving!
Within two weeks, over 1.5 tons of donations were received at the Our Lady of the Assumption Church and other outlets. Numerous volunteers were always available to ensure that goods are received and properly packed for the shipment daily. Donations from as far as Barrie and Hamilton were dropped off at the different outlets. Cash donations are steadily flowing in.
Dozens of volunteers helped to sort donations and load the container as the first shipment of relief goods was ready to be sent out to the Philippines.
