Willowdale in the '70s family - thank you for joining us! We proudly support the work of NeighbourLink North York, in particular their newly launched 415 Food Hub. This specialized food bank provides dignified access to healthy food, including fresh produce, dairy, eggs and meat. Established in 1994, NeighbourLink North York is a registered charity that seeks to alleviate poverty and social isolation in our beloved community. (All Canadian donations will receive a tax receipt. Click Here to view the 2021 Annual Report.) Wow! Willowdalers helping Willowdalers! What could be better than that?!


A Huge Thank You!


We are so grateful to the 203 Willowdale in 70s members who contributed to this fundraiser! It was remarkable to see the love you all have for this neighbourhood, and your contributions will go a long way toward fighting food insecurity in this community. Scroll below to see the Thank You Wall


We hit the December 31st goal of $10,000 which took NeighbourLink North York over the finish line of our total $50,000 end of year fundraising goal! It was truly a miracle! 

While this fundraiser allows us to start the new year on solid footing we are still not full funded for all of 2022! You can still make a tax deductible contribution below! Thank you!
