Coat Drive for Romero House

As one of our community projects this year, the 433rd Toronto Scout Group is collecting clean, gently-used or new coats/snowsuits for Romero House.
Romero House is a charitable organization in Toronto that has provided shelter and support to refugee claimants since 1992. Using a community based approach, volunteers and refugee claimants live together in three houses in a middle-class neighbourhood of west Toronto.
Please bring your coats/snowsuits (adult, youth, children, toddlers, infants) to any meeting in October. The Venturers and Scouts will help deliver them to Romero House.

What's Apple Day all about?
Apple Day is one of two major annual fund raisers for our group. Unlike our annual registration 100% of funds raised through Apple Day donations go to our group. Here are some of the things that these donations get used for:
  • purchase and maintenance camping equipment
  • subsidizing group events, outings, and camps
  • purchasing badges and crests
Scouts don't "sell" apples, there is no fixed price. We seek donations from the public and we need to show our pride and gratitude to the public.

Please show with your uniform in best condition, wear a smile, and speak with a clear voice. Always thank people, even when they decline.
Thank you!
