Torontonians who want to help people experiencing homelessness this holiday season have a one-stop place to go for helpful ideas: the 2017 Holiday Wish List.
The City of Toronto surveyed agencies that run shelters, drop-ins and other services, asking them what gifts would bring cheer to their clients during the holidays. Fifty agencies are on this year's list, which details specific items that clients need, along with contacts and information about volunteer opportunities and holiday events.
The most requested items on this year's list are winter clothing, gift cards, toiletries, baby products and non-perishable food.
"These small, everyday items can make a big difference to a person or family in need," said Mayor John Tory. "If you're looking to give back to your community this season, the Holiday Wish List is a good place to start."
Many agencies are also looking for volunteers to help with sorting donations, wrapping gifts and preparing and serving food.
The 2017 Holiday Wish List is available at http://www.toronto.ca/holiday-wish-list.
