It was the perfect day to deliver hats, mitts, socks and coats to St. Brigid/St. Catherine of Sienna Out of the Cold Program with temperatures in the minus double digits in Toronto.  Trustee and Board Chair Angela Kennedy organizes this program every year in her East York area schools.  Students from St. Patrick Catholic Secondary School delivered the much-needed items to the St. Brigid’s Out of the Cold Program on Monday, January 4th.


This overnight shelter is open on Monday afternoon from 4:00 pm to 8:00 am. and usually holds about seventy cots for men and women. On extremely cold nights, the available spaces can go over one hundred people. The extras can sleep on the floor or on the chairs. On this cold day some of the guests were waiting inside the doors.
