This past weekend, Brands For Canada took part in the 6th Homeless Connect Toronto event at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. The event is committed to helping individuals to connect the dots to end homelessness in their lives by bringing together partners who can donate items and services.
This years event had 1005 at-risk or homeless guests receiving over 85 services on-site. The services ranged from hearing assessments to pet care, dental care, chiropractic care, Hep C testing, foot care, haircuts, flu shots, manicures, portrait photography, clothing, health resources, eye assessments, community supports, leisure, nutrition, diabetic support, education and employment supports, housing supports, legal supports, mental health and addictions. There was even live music on site!
The sixth annual Project Homeless Connect helps thousands of Torontonians access services such as dental, eye exams, flu shots, clothing, legal support and pet care as we near the coldest months of the year.
