In the spirit of sharing and giving back, last evening, the Rotman Morning & Evening MBA and Master of Finance working professionals team donated to and volunteered with the Evergreen centre, a part of Yonge Street Mission.
We helped to prepare and serve a warm and delicious meal to street-involved youth. Led by the amazing, kind and organized staff at Evergreen, everything came together beautifully.
As the scrumptious meal of paella served with a colourful salad was cooking, we went on a tour of the facilities. The Evergreen centre’s compassionate work is manifold. There’s a career centre, art therapy, housing advocates, a nursery, a full-medical centre with facilities for dental work, eye care and other medical necessities, and so much more.
We’re so thankful to have had this opportunity to lend a hand to such an inspiring organization in our city!
The Evergreen centre for street involved youth is a unique place where youth between the ages of 16 and 24 can access employment services, warm meals and supports including an on-site nursery.
