Thank you to all who donated to the North York Harvest Food Bank at the January

Shoebox Project

This year we delivered 85 gift-filled shoe boxes to the Pregnancy Care Centre to be given to women who are facing unplanned pregnancies, seeking confidential information and caring support.
Update – The North York Pregnancy Care Centre was overjoyed with our delivery of the boxes knowing that so many of their families would have a very merry Christmas; and to all who contributed full boxes, useful and lovely items to go in the boxes and monetary donations – a huge thank you.
