Eglinton Crosstown LRT Construction Updates & Map

At a cost of $5.3 billion, the Eglinton Crosstown is the largest transit expansion in Toronto’s history. It is a light rail transit (LRT) line that will run along Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis (Weston Road) and Kennedy station. This 19-kilometre corridor will include a 10-kilometre underground portion, between Keele Street and Laird Drive. Construction is currently underway and the Crosstown service will begin in 2020. Until then, Torontonians will be dealing with some heavy traffic on and around Eglinton Ave.

Support the 44th Annual Community Canned Food Drive

Last year with the help of over 300 volunteers, this food drive collected over 16,000 items of non-perishable food.  While this is a remarkable amount of food, donations have unfortunately declined by 25% over the past few years. Did you know that Evangel Hall receives approximately 70% of their donations from this Food Drive?  They rely on donations to help feed and stock the pantries of families in need.  This Food Drive is very special as it helps feed recipients for the winter and Christmas season.  Without this Canned Food Drive, the various churches and agencies would not be able to support those in need.

On Saturday November 28th, the food items received from the community are packed and delivered to various food agencies:  Evangel Hall, Toronto Christian Resource Centre, Flemington Park Food Bank and St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Every single donation makes a difference. If more convenient, a cheque payable to one of the four recipient organizations listed above would be appreciated.

Thank you for your support and kindness.
