About Us

Our Objective

Blankets for T.O. is a non-profit organization situated at the University of Toronto that strives to provide support and resources to those in need of housing across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). We also advocate against the stigma associated with homelessness, with the ultimate goal of eradicating it. Our team has worked towards our goal by distributing food, blankets, hand sanitizers, and masks to those in need. We will continue to motivate others to help the homeless of our city and educate others on the severity of this issue. Links to our social media can be found on the Contact page.

Our Events and Initiatives

We host events for the student community at the University of Toronto Scarborough and we help distribute donations gathered from students, private citizens, organizations, and private companies to shelters and individuals in need.

Our Provincial Reach

Homelessness is not isolated to any single city, region, or country. Starting in 2021, Blankets for T.O. is actively expanding its reach by establishing new local Blankets for T.O. chapters outside of the University of Toronto. Local chapters are being set up in Oshawa, London and Hamilton. Browse all of our chapters here.
