Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre
Help one man enjoy dinner for a week
Okay, let’s be frank – the Toronto housing market is a tough nut to crack. Even with a pandemic, home sales are surging this summer. Prices not only held steady but increased in some parts…SMH.
David is a 57-year-old Torontonian on an old-age pension who hasn’t been able to find affordable housing (surprise, surprise), and he’s been in and out of the shelter at Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Center for the past two years. He’s still working very hard as a dishwasher at a local post-secondary school, but it’s not enough to cover housing expenses, and that’s been pretty stressful. Luckily he’s getting housing support from the city and he’s about to move into a place of his own. He is ecstatic at the thought of enjoying his digs while cooking and watching Frasier re-runs on TV (his favourite!).
How you can help
We want this dishwasher to put the dirty plates down and take a stab at cooking for himself. We’re pooling funds to give David something to enjoy after working so hard – meal kits for a week! He’ll get fresh vegan ingredients delivered to his door for lunch and dinner from a local grocer, Sorry I’ve Got Plants.
