Engage And Change

Engage and Change is a charity that was created to foster good citizenship and encourage healthy communities by giving back. Engage and Change gives people and companies the opportunities to do hands on group volunteer projects that assemble and build kits to assist in the alleviation of poverty. These kits are then distributed to the local communities through social service agencies directly to those in need.

After making two trips to fit 40 survival kits and 40 sleeping bags in my tiny hatchback, there are already several guys out on the streets of Toronto this morning with warmer hands, necks and heads – so thank you from them, and from me! - Sarah, Woodgreen Community Services

On behalf of over 1500 clients, volunteers and staff, I would like to thank you for your thoughtfulness in selecting our organization to receive 75 cases of water for this year’s “Project Water”.

The generous support of individuals like you makes it possible for our organization to exist and to make the community a great place to live. - Susan Carbone, Haven on Queensway
