For our ‘Giving Back’ Day on April 20 this year, EC Toronto staff gave up their Saturday to volunteer at the Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Club in Regent Park. Regent Park is a neighbourhood in downtown Toronto and is the largest Social Housing project in North America. We cleaned and re-organized their large storage room, which was a little messy!
The Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs provides a safe place for after-school, evening and school break programmes. The Club provides children from low-income families with supervised after-school activities centered on literacy and learning; cooking and nutrition; creative arts; physical activity; personal development; career development and leadership training.
A giant THANK YOU to all who came to help and especially to Hye-Rim for organising this day to give back to the community. EC Toronto is planning to organize more volunteering projects with this great organization so please stay tuned!
