Project Winter Survival

Come to Friends and Family Night this Wednesday November 9th and help City Downtown raise money for a great local initiative, Project Winter Survival, helping the homeless stay alive in these upcoming cold winter months. 

What is Project Winter Survival?

For the past 11 years, Project Winter Survival and their team of volunteers & donors have assembled and distributed over 10,000 winter survival kits. These kits provide warmth and essential supplies needed for the homeless and less fortunate to survive on the streets. These kits often make the difference between life and death.
Each year they have over 12,000 requests for these life saving kits, from agencies that help these people directly, which they try to fulfill. Their goal this year is to assemble and distribute 2500 kits to over 90 front line agencies, which include the Red Cross, Salvation Army, local shelters and drop-in programs in the GTA. These agencies then distribute the kits to the most vulnerable people who are living on the streets.


Friends and Family Night!

City Downtown's Friends and Family Night is coming up this Wednesday, November 9th! Get excited! From 6 to 8 pm, there will be make up artists, fashion shows, lots of food, and great merchandise to buy! It's also a great way to get an early start on your Christmas shopping. We'll also be hosting some George Brown Jewellery students showcasing their fabulous designs, that are also going to be available to purchase! You can check out their blog here 

Hope to see you there!

Line Knitwear - MORE TO COME!

I forgot to bring my camera into the store yesterday, and when I brought it in today, our Line Knitwear merchandise was almost completely sold out! There were three sweaters/cardigans left when the store opened, but people were trying on two of them, so I was only able to photograph one! They're a huge hit! We'll be getting some new Line Knitwear very soon! We'll keep you posted.

Last sweater!
