Celebrating Holiday with a Gesture of Compassion.

TORONTO, ON. August 29, 2023 |  As the season of gratitude approaches, Afro Canadian Development Inc. is gearing up to host a remarkable initiative that embodies the true spirit of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a day when families and friends come together to celebrate the blessings in their lives, sharing meals and heartfelt moments. It’s a time to reflect on the abundance we often take for granted and to lend a helping hand to those who may not be as fortunate. We recognize the importance of embodying these values and look forward to making a tangible difference in the lives of homeless individuals in Toronto.

We are organizing a Thanksgiving Food Drive on October 9 to provide essential sustenance to homeless individuals in Downtown Toronto. In this heartfelt effort, everyone will enjoy a warm meal and clean water this holiday season. Volunteers and supporters will gather to assemble food packages and distribute them to homeless individuals in the downtown. The event embodies our cherished values of community, compassion, and unity.

“We believe that Thanksgiving is a time to express gratitude and extend a helping hand to those who are less fortunate,” said Emmanuel Animodi, Director at Afro Canadian Development Inc.

We invite the community to join hands in this endeavor. This Thanksgiving, you can help make a difference to those who need it most by donating to the organization and helping make their holiday special. With our combined efforts, we can positively impact the lives of homeless individuals and give them hope and nourishment during Thanksgiving.
