COLLECT DONATIONS AND EARN VOLUNTEER HOURS.

Project Gifts for Good volunteers earn volunteer hours for collecting donation items.

Volunteers earn one volunteer hour for each contact they get to donate.

Donations will be packaged into care packages by volunteers and the Project 5K team.

These care packages will be distributed to homeless shelters and directly to the homeless of downtown Toronto.
