Habitat Toronto celebrates Mother’s Day on the build site

Mothers need more than a card for Mother’s Day, they need a home to put it in

Toronto- On Saturday, Habitat for Humanity Toronto will hold its first-ever Mother’s Day Build to honour mothers everywhere. Over two dozen mothers and other volunteers will be pitching in to put up the sheetrock in 10 townhouses, aided and abetted by celebrity emcee Mag Ruffman.

The Mother’s Day Build will be held at Habitat Toronto’s Rotary Drive site at 38 St. Lawrence Ave. (near Queen and River). Over 23 Toronto Rotary Clubs have come together to build and fund this development as their Centennial Community Project. When complete, this new community will see over 30 children and their parents move out of poverty housing into their own simple, decent, and affordable homes. RBC Financial Group generously supported the Mother’s Day Build with a donation of $50,000 through the RBC Foundation.
