Refresh is a unique program designed to create a strong sense of community, restore local pride, and improve the living conditions of those living in homes provided by Toronto Community Housing. This program runs for one week in the month of July. Volunteers from across Toronto and beyond join forces with local residents to paint the interior of their homes, eat together, and provide a variety of volunteer services designed to develop a network of neighbourhood support. Approximately 250 homes were involved in 2012.
This summer Refresh is taking place from July 1-5. Volunteers will be painting in the Jane-Finch community, Mississauga, and Brampton. We’re looking forward to another great week of serving the GTA! If you would like to become a volunteer for Refresh 2013 you can do so here.
