Do you have any skates that could be donated or loaned to help a new Canadian learn to skate?
Mount Dennis, in Toronto near Weston and Eglinton, is one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Ontario and is home to many new immigrant families. This winter, for the first time in decades, it will have a community-run natural ice-rink in Pearen Park. We have volunteers ready to teach local kids (and others) the joys of skating, which can give them a whole new appreciation for winter in Ontario. But we need skates for them to learn on!
If you have skates in good condition that could be donated or loaned for this purpose, please contact us ASAP.
