As with yesterday’s Valentine’s Day treats, we’ve been on a roll with our determination to be more active in our charitable mindset. .
Every year around the Christmas holidays, with the help of our families, and friends, we raise money to support Crabtree. But in 2015, we decided to do something a little bit different.
Between hosting the Star Wars Screening and the Crown Royal Raffle, we were not only able to raise over $2500 for Crabtree, but also increase awareness about the issues in the DTES for all that attended the event, and more broadly through our social channels.
@EastSideGames Thank you for your generosity!

We have continued this support into 2016 with our Valentines Day project. With help, we created 36 gift bags filled with tea and coffee, chocolates and personal care products, which we delivered to the centre yesterday afternoon. 12 bags went to the women-in-need living at the facility, and the other 24 were distributed to the volunteers who are integral to keeping everything running.
