How can we help people experiencing homelessness during extreme-cold weather?


With winter just around the corner, find out how you can help people experiencing homelessness.

During periods of extreme cold, people experiencing homelessness are the first to suffer. Here's how you can help:

  • Give money, a metro ticket or a cup of coffee directly to someone on the street. Ask them what they could use.
  • Keep your eyes open. If you see a person who's unconscious, call 911 immediately.
  • Donate warm clothes and winter boots to the Old Brewery Mission. Find out what we need.
  • Make a monetary donation.
