The YES Shelter for Youth and Families has collaborated with Paul Davis Systems as part of the Raising the Roof Campaign. On February 2nd, YES participated in Raising the Roof’s National  Toque Tuesday. Since 1997, the annual Toque Campaign has supported over 180 community agencies across Canada, raising $7 million to support long-term solutions to end homelessness.

YES volunteers sold Raising the Roof merchandise at Lansdowne Place Mall on Toque Tuesday. There are still some Raising the Roof toques, mittens and sports socks left for sale, with the proceeds benefiting YES. If you are interested in purchasing any Raising the Roof Merchandise, you can place an order on the Runner’s Life website.
