This year has been tough. Really tough. With all the time that we’ve stayed indoors to practice safe measures, we’ve had much less time than usual to see outside our own spheres to see the challenges of those around us. People experiencing poverty and homelessness are the most impacted by all the events of 2020. There has been a decline in charitable giving since the onset of the pandemic, due to many people losing their jobs and businesses having to close their doors. That is why, this year, for our winter holiday event we’ve decided to give back to a great cause that we truly believe in.
We felt like our time and money would be best served contributing to a non-profit that is serving the less fortunate in our community. In honour of all of our amazing clients this past year who we appreciate greatly, we have donated to the Ve’ahavta organization and created a video sharing just a glimpse into the work they do.
Ve’ahavta is a Jewish humanitarian organization dedicated to promoting positive change in the lives of people of all faiths and backgrounds who have been marginalized by poverty and hardship. Ve’ahavta mobilizes volunteers in meaningful, hands-on experiences to fulfill our collective responsibility to care for our neighbours.
But the need for these non-profits doesn’t stop. Organizations such as Ve’ahavta have actually seen a sharp increase in demand.
We encourage you to visit their website to learn about the various initiatives they have to help those who are experiencing homelessness and those who are trying to improve their situation.
Also check out their latest successful event, The Ve’ahavta Project. On November 8, 2020, the community came together and made a difference for those facing poverty and homelessness in Toronto. What they accomplished is amazing considering it was totally remote for volunteers:
We want to share our thanks to the volunteers and donors who were a part of The Ve’ahavta Project!
We feel so lucky to be able to give back in this way due to your trust and support and encourage you all to find your own ways to support the community as we head into 2021.
All the best & we look forward to seeing you in the new year!
