Greenwood hosted its 5th annual Project Impact campaign this December, which allowed students and staff to learn more about food scarcity, hunger and homelessness in Toronto and raise money for Out of the Cold Foundation. This year’s campaign included a combination of workshops, school-wide activities and a fundraiser in support of our yearly Out of the Cold Dinner.
As a fundraising initiative, we hosted a silent auction at the school from December 3-10 in support of Out of the Cold. Students and staff bid on several items including a signed Maple Leafs jersey, an array of gift baskets and a custom three-course meal for five students, courtesy of the Food and Culture class. The auction was very successful, raising over $1,500.
On Thursday, December 12, over 150 guests attended the Out of the Cold Dinner at St. Matthew’s United Church. Guests were served greek salad, roasted vegetables, broccoli-cheddar soup, grilled sausage, brownies and more. Many students and staff spent the day cooking and then spent the evening serving dinner.
Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Project Impact campaign highly successful.
