How it works
Troop leverages technology to provide you with a new way to discover and fulfill needs in your neighbourhood.
Here are a few of the amazing, local organizations we’ve worked with:
Amy is a new mom to a six-month-old baby. Life can be hard as a new mom, but it’s even harder if you’re 17 years old, living in shared housing and raising a child alone while trying to finish high school. Amy is working hard to become the kind of mom she wants to be, and with the help of the team at the Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program, she’s on the right path.
When it’s 20 degrees below zero and skins cells are exposed, that skin and the rest of my body feels damn cold. I’m likely not alone in feeling this, which makes me think a lot about homeless people in our community as I dust off my winter best.
The temperature is due to drop into the low single digits within the next few weeks. Making it just the right time for Troop to help out the members of Sistering, a multi-service charity, supporting socially isolated women in Toronto who are homeless or precariously housed.
The LA Centre for Active Living, a registered charity, has become a haven for marginalized, economically disadvantaged and disabled seniors, aged 55+. Their Food Rescue program hasn’t been the same since the breakdown of the Centre’s freezer in September. Without being able to keep the delivered food frozen, they can no longer accept perishable food items until the freezer is replaced. This creates a protein shortage for the seniors, who rely on the program.

Thank you, Troop Members, for contributing to an even more memorable summer for the children in our care.
Four new refugee families were deeply grateful for the backpacks and school supplies that Troopers sent our way as kids started school for the first time in this country.
While our houseguests enjoy your delicious treats and have fun with your toys, their humans are able to attend support and health services knowing their animal companions are happy and safe. Your paw up is much appreciated and helps us keep people & pets together.

Here are the latest updates from our blog:
Even though it was snowing in Toronto, Troop members brought the heat. I hit the road to make 15 stops at neighbourhood houses to collect slightly used winter gear for the members of Sistering. The call went out for hats, mitts, and scarfs, what we got was all of that and more! We’re talking jackets, boots, ponchos, sweaters, slippers and even some much-needed undergarments.
It was touch-and-go there for a while – 24 hours before the freezer need was due to close and we were still only at 42% of our target. This need started on the Thanksgiving long weekend, which means the need had already been running for 9 days – and we were only at 42% of our target!
