Scott Mission Helps People In Need

Posted on December 26th, 2014

The Scott Missionimage1 was founded in 1941 by Rev. Morris and Mrs. Annie Zeidman. The Scott Mission responds to the needs of the poor, homeless, abandoned and vulnerable of all ages. Based in Toronto, Canada, the Mission offers practical, emotional and spiritual support to thousands of people in need.

Among their many services, they offer hot meals six days a week, daily bag lunches, a low-cost daycare, a summer camp for children and youth, free good-quality clothing, groceries, shower and laundry facilities for the homeless, an overnight program, shelter, an after-school program for children and youth, and friendly visitation and retreats. The Mission is focused on the poorest of the poor.

How many people does Scott Mission provide for? The answer is simple – thousands. In 2010, they served 64,209 hot meals and bag lunches to men and women; set up 35,020 clothing appointments for men, women and children; 44,482 bags of groceries from our food bank were given to families in need; cared for the many children in our Child Care Centre; provided a free one-week camping experience for more than 600 children and youth at our summer camp in Caledon, Ontario; distributed 2,917 Christmas grocery gift cards; distributed free Christmas gifts to 2,568 children at Christmas; handed out 5,976 baby items, and provided shelter, laundry and shower facilities for 45-50 homeless men, 365 days a year.

Earlier this month, CCSF dropped by the Scott Mission to donate $1000, 156 brand new shirts and some plush toys for their holiday toy drive.
