With the successful completion of SLYO Toronto’s Sharing is Caring Event in 2018, SLYO in collaboration with Buddhist Youth council and Canada Kindful Nation continued the momentum with the 2nd annual Sharing is Caring event on February 2nd, 2019, creating 150 care packages for the homeless in downtown Toronto. With donations from the community for food and clothing the second annual event was a massive success.
With an enthusiastic group of young volunteers, packages were assembled leading up to the event. The packages were then distributed by walking in all areas in downtown Toronto and where the group finally arrived at Good Shepherd to donate all bulk items. Despite walking for over 10kms in the cold and snow, everyone returned home with a joyful heart with their generosity and love partaking in this wonderful community event.
