I would like to personally thank you for your kind donation, you are now officially a Food for Now Angel.
I started Food for Now when Covid-19 began as I could see there was an immediate need to help the most vulnerable.
With the majority of the downtown offices closed, the pedestrian traffic downtown has become minimal, so a great resource for the homeless disappeared overnight.
I was homeless 19 years ago. I know what it’s like to live on the streets and I’ve never forgotten how unimaginably hard it is to survive. The experience left a life long imprint on my soul that changed me forever, and a willingness to help others any way I can.
With the help of many people within the community of Etobicoke who provided food, shelter and essentials, I was able to slowly pull myself out of homelessness. I was able to get full custody of my son Elton and rebuild my life. I did that by sweeping sidewalks, cleaned garbage and fixed things for neighbours and local businesses.
It is out of donations like yours and with the help of local small businesses, I am able to provide shelter, much needed water, food, clothing, blankets and pillows.
My mission is - "Make today a little bit better than yesterday. One person at a time."
Thank you once again and know, your help is truly making a difference.
Please feel free to contact me directly at any time if you have any questions.
Have a beautiful day!
