Refresh is a unique program designed to create a strong sense of community, restore local pride, and improve the living conditions of those living in homes provided by Toronto Community Housing. This program runs for one week in the month of July. Volunteers from across Toronto and beyond join forces with local residents to paint the interior of their homes, eat together, and provide a variety of volunteer services designed to develop a network of neighbourhood support. Approximately 250 homes were involved in 2012.
Refresh 2012 was a huge success! We had approximately 700 volunteers paint around 250 homes in 7 different sites across the GTA! Thank you to everyone who was a part of this great week. We couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s a recap of Refresh 2012!
