Junction Residents Association’s supports Toronto Miracle

Posted on December 3, 2020

There’s a city-wide food drive (Toronto Miracle) happening on Saturday December 5. The general premise is to invite every household to donate 1 non-perishable food item (please check to ensure the donation is not expired). The Junction Residents Association will be promoting and helping to organize a Junction-wide effort in support of Toronto Miracle.

Given the limited time we have to organize, we are asking residents to volunteer to be a Community Captain for their street by signing up using the following portal Volunteer | Toronto Miracle | December 5th Food Drive  Once you have signed up, please email us at junctionra@gmail.com so we can partner with you to arrange local drop off locations, organize pick up routes, support the health & safety plan and collaborate with local food organizations. You will essentially be responsible for inviting neighbours who live on your street and we will support you with everything else.

The JRA also needs volunteer drivers to pick up donations. Please contact us at junctionra@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out.

If you are not able to volunteer to be a Community Captain at this time but would like to donate food, please visit Donate | Toronto Miracle | December 5th Food Drive to do so. Please email us at junctionra@gmail.com we will arrange to pick it up.”
