I was out from 2am-7am yesterday feeding the homeless. A new good friend and I handed out 150 sandwiches and 200 bottles of water. Was there something better we really could have been doing with our time?
You can read a bit more about homelessness in Toronto in this report from the city itself.
Reports vary in terms of how homelessness is measured, some say 4,000 others say 40,000 homeless individuals. Either way there’s only enough for about 3,000 people in shelters. And imagine those winters.
Even the ‘middle class’ are being driven out of the downtown core with gentrication and skyrocketing living costs.
What’s an individual in a big city like Toronto suppose to do about all of this?
