Love All. Serve All.
Hillsong CityCare is an expression of Hillsong Church focused on engaging with our local neighbourhoods. Our heart is to see lives changed, families strengthened, communities transformed and future generations positioned to make a difference.
Currently, we do this by facilitating campaigns that mobilize Hillsong Church to help individuals and families in times of need through emergency food relief and contributing to annual campaigns financially, in-kind or through volunteering.
This Easter, Hillsong Toronto and CityCare Toronto will be partnering with Second Harvest; an organization committed to providing hunger relief and nourishment for those experiencing food insecurity.
As the cost of day-to-day necessities has risen sharply in recent months, so has the rise of food insecurity in Toronto. The impact of rising food costs are felt by many, but often even more so by families that are already experiencing some level of poverty. As a church, we are committed to being part of the solution, and here’s how you can help:
We will be collecting non-perishable food items and/or grocery gift card donations during our regular Sunday services (10am & 12pm) on April 3rd and April 10th at 888 Yonge Street, Toronto. Simply look for the CityCare stand, and our Team will be there to receive your donations.
Please see below for a list of suggested donation items:
Shelf-stable fruits & vegetables
Canned fruit (in its own juice)
Fruit juice (100%)
Infant foods/baby formula

BACK TO SCHOOL
Our Back-To-School initiative focuses on helping families that are facing economic challenges. We provide students with the necessary school supplies to be successful as they engage with their studies. We believe each student should have their basic educational needs met and aim to equip students to have a successful school year and future.
Our Christmas Project initiative is all about bringing a smile to a child’s face as they open their present on Christmas morning.
WE CAN’T DO EVERYTHING BUT WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING
