It was February 2018, and I was running super late for an important pitch meeting for a big account. I was stressed and anxious about closing the deal. I parked in the underground lot and hightailed it up the stairs to the street for the short walk to work. As I looked up, I saw a disheveled man with an oversized jacket standing at the corner.
A better end to a tough year
As 2020 comes to an end, those who celebrate Christmas are preparing for a different kind of holiday season. Family gatherings are limited, and a Turkey dinner over Zoom just isn’t the same.
Arrabon House, a charity in Parkdale that runs a youth house for survivors of abuse, trauma and mental health challenges for young people aged 13-24 years, are working hard to make this season a good kind of different for the six youth living at the house.
How you can help
This year, Arrabon House needs some help with holiday gifts for the youth. We’re pooling funds to purchase six $50 gift cards to the retail store of the youth’s choice for Christmas. Let’s end this year on a high note for our young neighbours.
