Out Of the Cold
Main aim of the charity
Out of the Cold is an interfaith program that strives to respond in a meaningful way to the basic physical needs of shelter, food and warm clothing for the less fortunate members of our society – as well as to respond to the deeply human needs of compassion, dignity and feelings of self-worth.
How the employee got involved and why
I do it because each year there are more and more vulnerable people that need help. Christmas in particular as homeless have no family or friends to feel welcome. I feel that I need to do my part. I have been volunteering with this organization for over ten years. I have helped set up for meals and serving homeless. It’s my opportunity to give back to those in need.
What work does the employee do for charity
Every Christmas I volunteer with the Out of the Cold Program. It is a non denomination organization that provides catered meals to homeless people in Toronto throughout the winter months. I support this cause around Christmas because in addition to providing food we provide clothing and gift cards to purchase an additional meal.
