Raising the Roof Toque Tuesday educates and raises money
Feb. 6, 2018
Raising the Roof volunteer team in Markham raises more than $2,000.
Community members in Markham gathered together at the Markham GO Transit station on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 during the early morning rush hours to help raise money and support for Raising the Roof’s National Toque Campaign.
The team, which included members of HOMES Publishing Group (HPG), raised money and awareness for Raising the Roof, which supports local agencies in the fight against homelessness nationally and here in our community. A large portion of the money raised will go towards community partner agencies. As a result, the funds through toque sales and donations in Markham will stay in Markham to help support its homelessness programs, targeting at-risk families and youth.
The Markham group, lead by Sonia Presotto and Josh Rosset of HPG, raised over $2,000 in toque sales and donations to support Toque Tuesday.
“We could not have done this without the support of our wonderful volunteers and our community,” said Rosset.
For more information on Toque Campaign opportunities, contact Joe Goulart, director of development and communications at Raising the Roof.
