On November 4th 2018 Project Comforted hosted local residents of Fort York, Liberty Village, City Place and area shelters. A special thanks to Tim Hortons at Dan Leckie Way and Fort York for supplying the donuts. The event allowed attendees to engage in open dialogue resulting in new ideas where we can assist residents in their transition to sustainable housing.
Alongside Fred Victor, Project Comfort hosted a holiday gathering at the Respite Centre on Bathurst St & Lake Shore Blvd W.
This was an opportunity to share with the less fortunate in our community and create a memorable experience for those in need a during the holiday season.
Project Comfort had the pleasure of speaking to first and second graders at Regal Public School. Many of the children shared how they like to help the homeless by giving them food or change.
They presented a mitten tree to help out those in need. On the tree were:
21 winter hats
25 sets of mittens/gloves
46 sets of socks
6 pairs of boys’ underwear
3 pair of girls’ underwear
1 set of earmuffs
Project Comfort volunteers came together to treat guests of the St. Felix Respite Centre to a summer BBQ.
In addition to the many volunteers (residents of the local condo community) this event was possible because of the kind donation of many local businesses. Special shout out to the Sobey's store on Queens Quay who donated most of the food and drinks.
After the BBQ volunteers and guests played a game of Trivia in the sunshine.

On February 26th 2019 volunteers of Project Comfort participated in the "Coldest Night of the Year" walk.
Raising the second largest group donation amount for St Felix local residents showed their pride in their community.
Thanks to all who participated and donated to this event.
