COVID-19 Relief Initiatives

An overview of CASSA’s efforts to mitigate COVID-19 conditions and provide support to the community. Some of our initiatives include:

Food Baskets for Racialized seniors

Food Baskets for Seniors

The Food Basket program is now closed.

A huge thanks to the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program for their support with this initiative.

 CASSA, in partnership with SacredHand Canada and Punjabi Community Health Services, has been able to provide 200 food baskets to low-income South Asian seniors across the Greater Toronto Area.

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!
