Willowdale in the '70s family - thank you for joining us! We proudly support the work of NeighbourLink North York, in particular their food programs which includes their food hub, which provides dignified access to healthy food, including fresh produce, dairy, eggs and meat, their mobile food distribution, which delivers food hampers to seniors, and people with disabilities who are facing food insecurity and community navigators programs, where neighbours support neighbours in getting further supports in the community. 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 2022 Annual Report.) Wow! Willowdalers helping Willowdalers! What could be better than that?!


A Huge Thank You!


We are so grateful to all of the Willowdale in 70s members who raised over 13K toward our our 75K Year End Goal last year! It was remarkable to see the love you all have for this neighbourhood, and your contributions went a long way toward feeding 150+ families each month!

This Years Campaign

For NeighbourLink to be sustainable in 2024 and continue supporting families, single moms, seniors, under-resourced youth and newcomers we once again must raise 75K.
