The Governing Council of the Salvation Army in Canada
Santa Shuffle 2022 - Toronto - Family Team of 6 - 5K and Elf Walk
Saturday December 10, 2022

Please help us make this year's Santa Shuffle 2022 - Toronto in support of The Governing Council of the Salvation Army in Canada one of the best ever

Friends and Family,

This year Ben, Willa, and I will be participating in the Santa Shuffle 5k in support of the Drop-in program at The Gateway. The Gateway is a men’s shelter with 120 beds at Jarvis and Richmond Streets in Toronto. The Drop-in program provides meals, social interaction, safety, and a warm place for drop-in guests. It services the residents of the Gateway and also men and women who may live on a fixed income and not be able to stretch their income to cover meals. This program is mainly funded through the Santa Shuffle.

Social assistance rates in Ontario have only risen 11% since they were cut in the mid 90's, however the cost of living has risen at a much faster rate over the same period, and this has only been exacerbated by the pandemic. For many of the men and women who access The Gateway services, the stress of not being able to afford to live is constant, and the central way this plays out is by having to choose between paying their rent or buying groceries. The Gateway's Drop-in program relieves some of this stress and prevents homelessness by meeting basic needs and allowing people on a very fixed income to stretch their money further.

Each year we are humbled by your generosity and deeply grateful for your support of The Gateway's work. This year our family fundraising goal is $1500.

If you are able to contribute and help us reach our goal, please donate!

With love and gratitude,

Ben, Emily and Willa
