Keeping Mom and Baby Connected

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.

The Cold Is Coming

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.

Getting By Without a Freezer

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.

The Heat’s On

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.

We Got The Freezer!

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!
