You may not think of it like this, but we certainly do. As a volunteer and donor of Ve’ahavta, we consider you our partner in the vital, lifesaving work we do. We create the opportunities. But it’s YOU who shows up and through your commitment and generosity, help to change people’s lives.  

This month, we have partnered with some wonderful organizations in our community to create several ways for you to raise funds, donate, and volunteer your time to keep making a difference:

  • The Coldest Night of the Year, Feb 25 @7PMJoin us for a family friendly, fundraising, night walk with Beth Tzedec Congregation, to raise much needed funds and awareness for people facing homelessness. Join us!
  • Family-to-Family Volunteer Opportunity, sign up til Feb 24 Together with Camp Manitou Canada, we’re inviting “helper” families to pair with Ve’ahavta client families to fulfill their wish-list of gently used and new items they need, including children’s clothing, toys, and housewares. Be a helper family!
  • Purim Cooking for a Cause, March 2 @12-1PM: Ruthie and Nathan from United Bakers Dairy Restaurant, together with Ve’ahavta’s Recipe for Success culinary training interns, will do a live and interactive soup making class on Zoom. Make UB’s soup at home, enjoy it with your family, or deliver it to our office to distribute from our outreach vans. Let’s fulfill the Purim mitzvah to feed the hungry, together! Donate to attend.

We are grateful to our partner organizations who, like you, aren’t content to sit idly by and accept poverty, hunger and homelessness as necessary features of modern life. Like you, they search for ways to help, roll up their sleeves, and respond with “I’m in. Let’s do this!” 

Thank you for dedicating your time, your resources, and your energy to make this world a better and more equitable place. It’s an honour and a privilege to partner with you. 

Cari Kozierok,
Executive Director, Ve’ahavta
