THANK you to The George Cedric Metcalf Charitable Foundation for their grant of $1,500. We received this incredible donation, out of the blue, in January 2022. Thanks to their generosity, Toronto Street Cats will be able to purchase the supplies we need to make winter shelters for street cats as well as subsidize the cost of shelters for colony caretakers who are unable to afford paying for them. This is a tremendous display of charity and we can not possibly thank them enough.
About the Metcalf Foundation: “The Metcalf Foundation was established in 1960 by George Cedric Metcalf. We have three principal areas of focus: the environment, poverty reduction, and the performing arts. Through all of our work, we cultivate, support, and celebrate those working on the frontlines of social change.”
