Local love in a global crisis.

Help the most vulnerable as our communities respond to COVID-19.

We will get through this together

COVID-19 is putting our community’s most vulnerable people in an extremely challenging situation. Many do not have support if they need to self-isolate. Those who already face significant barriers, including poverty, homelessness and social isolation, need even more of our help during this time.

We are working closely with local governments in Peel, Toronto and York Region, along with our network of community agencies, to effectively address these needs in a rapidly changing situation. We are in regular contact with our agencies and are offering them flexible funding so they can address new and emerging issues.

But we need your support to ensure the people being served by our agencies, and the agencies themselves, have the resources they need to keep going.

This crisis may last weeks or months. We need the social safety net the agencies offer to be in place now—and in the future.

Please give now.

Your gift will allow us to invest resources where they’re needed most:

  • Basic needs

  • Capacity for community services

    Ensuring that community partners can continue to do their vital local work.

  • Mental health support

We’re all in this together. We’ll get through this together. That’s the power of community.

Please give generously today.

Thank you to all our donors, corporate partners and community partners who are showing their local love during this global crisis.
