On December 12, 2015, over 125 carolers gathered at corners around Yonge-Dundas Square to raise funds for homeless youth. Wearing Christmas props and costumes, holding songbooks, and attracting the attention of local passerby, the volunteers raised over $860 for homeless youth initiatives. Trek for Teens would like to thank all participants who attended the day. In addition, the organization would like to thank the Starbucks shops at 407 Yonge Street and 10 Dundas Street East for the donations of coffee to all volunteers.
A thank you, also, to Youth Nation Alliance, Project 5K, and Volunteer Toronto for their outreach to volunteers.
Carol to Care 2015 may conclude the Trek for Teens events for this calendar year but the organization has many outings in 2016 which range in theme and style - stay tuned for more information!
