People ask me, “How can I help? How can I really make a difference for our struggling neighbours?”
I tell them the truth! The best way to directly and immediately impact the lives of families and individuals who are struggling with hunger, homelessness, and hopelessness this winter is through your ongoing support of The Scott Mission.
Just ask Margot* who says, “The Scott Mission has helped us a lot with food, clothing, diapers, and more. Thank you for all your help and God bless you!”
Margot is just one of the many people in your community who struggles to make ends meet each day. After paying rent, neighbours like her have just $7.83* left per day to pay for groceries, diapers, bus passes, prescriptions, and everything else! Imagine the fear this woman lives with each day—
What if my baby gets sick?
What if I can’t afford to buy her formula?
What will I do when my toddler can’t fit into his winter coat?
Will we be homeless if I can’t pay the rent?
Here’s the facts that proves how your support really makes a difference. In 2019, your support helped provide—
92,119+ hot, nutritious meals for hungry neighbours
26,471 nights of safe shelter
30,846+ bags of groceries for hungry families and individuals
The spark of transformation in the lives of hundreds through ministry programs
788 children and youth received guidance in a nurturing environment through after-school programs and Scott Mission Camp in Caledon
Life-changing counselling for hundreds of hurting hearts
2,600 Families with Christmas help including gifts for 1,900+ children
Sadly, hunger and poverty remain a stark reality for many of your neighbours across Toronto. But when you support The Scott Mission, you’re helping people who are suffering and afraid get the meals, help, and hope they need for a better tomorrow!GIVE NOW!
