Be a Santa for a Senior Holiday Gift Drive, Toronto, ON

Since COVID, I've been keeping my hands busy by knitting and among other things, I've been knitting Honeycomb (aka Newfie) mittens. I've given lots away but still had many and I was looking for someplace to donate them.

Yesterday I came across the “Be a Santa for a Senior Holiday Gift Drive” program, run by Gwen Potter.

Gifts donated will go to recipients of the Meals on Wheels program run out of West Neighbourhood House (Ossington/Dundas W). Most of these men and women are over 55 and live alone.

I connected with her yesterday and she just picked up 28 pairs of mittens and a hat (she's in my 'hood). I'm so happy my mittens will find a home!

If you want to donate $, she will purchase gifts on your behalf. You can donate via the GoFundMe at
