Outreach Excursion by Hawthorn’s Leaders of Tomorrow

Three female high school students standing with 2 women in front of a YSM (Yonge Street Mission) sign. On the floor is a plastic white bin with packages of donated items for the YSM.

Congratulations and appreciation are warmly extended to Emma Caverly, Grade 11, who initiated the Leaders of Tomorrow Club at Hawthorn.

On April 17, Emma, Adesuwa, and Dani ventured out to visit the Yonge Street Mission. For a number of weeks, club members wrote notes of friendship and hope and assembled care packages for men and women in need in Toronto.

5 hand written post-it notes with words of encouragement

Packages consisted of toothbrushes and toothpaste donated by Brush Naked, nuts, chewing gum, sausages, gift cards to Tim Horton’s, disinfecting wipes, and a handwritten note.

The club delivered in person a total of 40 packages for the patrons of the Yonge Street Mission, received a tour of the facilities from Eleanor Edwards, Community Engagement & Fundraising Specialist, and learned about all the good work that the YSM does.

Learning about the stories and experiences of some of Toronto’s neediest citizens has made a lasting impact on our students, and they are grateful for this opportunity to reach out and help out.
