One week to go! End of summer/ celebrate back-to-school? Whatever the reason, drop by the @st.felixcentre respite site at 69 Fraser in Liberty Village for a last-Friday of August sweet treat: the ice cream truck will be back!! Meet our staff, greet and get to know some of our Community Safety Team!  We had a great afternoon a couple of weeks ago, so don’t miss this one.

A NEW WAY TO SUPPORT ST. FELIX CENTRE!
Our dear friend and supporter @natashankpr is launching #ShopNK at the end of the month! - a new E-comm venture.  Inside Shop NK you will find a selection of curated items from cool entrepreneurs and cutting-edge companies in three categories: style, beauty and entertaining.
Here’s the really cool part: a portion of all sales will go to five incredible charities - and you’ll see #stfelixcentre right up there. You get to choose which charity to support.
We feel truly grateful and honoured to have been invited to be part of this great project. Thank you Natasha for having St. Felix Centre so close to your heart! 🖤

Last Friday our Centre organized a community initiative to provide free ice cream and other frozen treats to help guests and the Liberty Village community come together to beat the heat. We had an ice cream truck parked outside the 69 Fraser Respite Site, and guests and people who live and work in Liberty Village had the opportunity to enjoy a great time together. We also took the opportunity to introduce the community to some of the members of our Community Safety Team (the awesome people wearing green shirts). Everyone had a great time, building community and getting to know each other. If you missed the activity this time, no need to worry! We will have the ice cream truck again at the site on Friday, August 30, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. We hope to see you all then!

Bright and early on a Monday morning, our friends from @gadventures Toronto volunteering this week as gardeners St. Felix Centre, sprucing up the beds up the driveway and around the entrance to our #clothingbank. Big smiles as you can see and even bigger hearts! Thank you from the bottom of ours!

Amazing neighbours! Our friends from down the street (Queen and Spadina) from team SoCast @socastsrm spent the day here prepping and serving meals to our guests as part of our #communitymealsprogram. And they also brought a van full of food they had collected over the past 3 weeks! Go visit them on FB at SoCast: Digital Growth Made Easy to see all their photos! And thank you guys for showing care, compassion and community to those experiencing homelessness-  #MakeaDifference, #LetsDoItTogether!

Last Friday we had a small appreciation luncheon to celebrate our volunteers. Our Director of Mission Integration, Iris Bartraw, thanked those volunteers participating in the activity for their time and invaluable support. She also recognized a couple volunteers for their many years volunteering at the Centre. Everyone had a great time, and we look forward to the next event to say Thank You again to our Heroes Without Capes!

Say hi to today’s St. Felix Centre volunteers from Imperial Capital! They were eager to support our transitional house for women, and also to prep and serve a nutritious lunch to our guests as part of our Community Meals Program. Once again, their hearts were ready to show care, compassion and community to those experiencing homelessness and to women who are on their journey to regain independence.  Thank you and bravo!

There are so many "little" things that we take for granted in our daily lives. Have you ever thought about how lucky you are to be able to pay for a haircut? How different would your life be and the perception that others have about you if you didn't have access to that? Our guests face that difficult reality all the time, but last week an extraordinary initiative took place in our 69 Fraser Ave Respite site: Organized by @hygieneonwheelstoronto, we received five amazing students from @marcacollegedufferin who offered professional haircuts to our guests for free over several hours and, while that was happening, two representatives of the @torontolibrary – from the Parkdale and Don Mills branches – were issuing library cards and offering other supports to our guests. And to round off the day, we offered a delicious BBQ to our guests too.
.
Our guests expressed many times how grateful and moved they felt by their generous act of kindness. We witnessed the dedication the students put into every haircut they did to make our guests look great. One of our guests even said: "I look so good that now they will let me into the mall to walk" – a statement that made us feel very happy, but also, when you reflect on it, with a broken heart. It was also amazing the smiles that the library representatives offered to our guests. Participants sat with them to find information about their current cards, other services, and those who didn’t have a card received the support they needed to get one.
.
We would like to thank everyone involved in this initiative! Your compassion was felt throughout the entre day, and will remain in the heart of our guests forever.
