Thanksgiving meals urgently needed.

Typically we serve more than 7,000 meals during the Thanksgiving season. This year, however, we expect to provide up to 28,000 neighbours with either a nutritious take-away meal or emergency food supplies.

Thanksgiving may not be the same this year but, thanks to donors like you, Yonge Street Mission will be here for neighbours in crisis.
