On June 20, 2019 NTN Bearing Corporation of Canada Ltd. (NTN Canada) was the volunteer sponsor of Eva’s Home for Life Auction, held at the Toronto Evergreen Brick Works. The night’s event raised over $250,000 in support of young people building futures free of homelessness.The funds will be used to provide shelter and caring support for 508 young people, so they can dream big and discover their potential.⁠

As the Volunteer Sponsor of Eva’s Home for Life, more than 100 NTN volunteers worked together brilliantly on all kinds of tasks from assembling new furniture, to working with the interior decorators to set up exhibits, all the way to cleaning, sweeping and tagging custom-made houseware items. With NTN's help the venue was transformed into a breathtaking marketplace filled with exciting virtual homes created by top Toronto designers, showcasing unique furniture and housewares. Plus, everyone enjoyed fabulous food and drinks, and a curated exhibit of art made by youth residents at Eva’s shelter and transitional housing facilities. An audience of over 400 attended the event and bid generously on items to help fund safe shelter, new opportunities and bright futures for homeless youth.

Eva's serves youth (16-23) who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk, operating three shelters in Toronto, and was founded through Eva Smith’s advocacy, a philanthropist who challenged the traditional stereotype about who is homeless. Eva understood that it was critical to keep youth connected to their schools and communities.

Special thanks to all of the NTN Canada volunteers who gave their time generously to support this great cause. NTN will continue to support initiatives to help deliver shelter, new opportunities and brighter futures for disassociated adolescents and young people.
