Haven Toronto Donation NTN

Last week, our partners at KWE donated spaghetti sauce and 400 packages of pasta to the Haven Toronto homeless shelter to ensure those in need have access to healthy and delicious meal options. A hot meal is a luxury for elder men impacted by poverty and homelessness. Fortunately the clients at Haven Toronto will enjoy the donation of pasta from KWE.

NTN Canada’s CEO, Paul Meo, encouraged KWE to support Haven Toronto in lieu of participating in a yearly corporate promotion with NTN. Instead, KWE made a donation to Haven Toronto in honour of NTN. "Having such an impact on the homeless has been a rewarding experience for us and we are so proud to have played a part," says Paul Meo.

Haven Toronto is the only charity in Canada that assists homeless and/or marginalized men aged 50 or older. Homeless shelters, already in tough positions, are facing even more hardships due to the pandemic. Shelters are working tirelessly to keep the homeless healthy, who are among the most vulnerable to contracting the virus. Further, donation volumes have decreased with social distancing measures and many charitable organizations are forced to slow down operations. KWE’s donation will go a long way in helping those most in need.

According to Thomas B. Smith, President, Managing Director, KWE Canada Inc., “KWE wholeheartedly supports this worthy cause and are proud to have made an impact on vulnerable people in crisis. We are committed to the communities where we work and live, and proud to lend our support to Haven Toronto in these challenging times."

Haven Toronto has maintained operations through COVID-19 but has suffered for lack of volunteers since the pandemic began. It relies entirely on the community. You can help – grab a group of coworkers, neighbours or friends to volunteer and donate food. Everyone can make a difference!
