Hygiene Packages for the Homeless

Hygiene for the Homeless

United Way of Greater Toronto granted funding to CASSA earlier this year through its Local Love Fund to provide 125 hygiene packages to homeless individuals in Toronto and Peel Region.

CASSA partnered with 3 shelters to distribute these packages. As a result, 125 homeless people were able to take care of their hygiene needs and protect themselves from COVID-19!
