ENGAGE AND CHANGE

We inspire people and businesses to engage in a hands-on experience with a tangible outcome that will change the lives of those in need.

project winter survival

An initiative dedicated to providing the homeless and less fortunate with Survival Kits, which help provide warmth and essential supplies needed for survival on the streets during the winter.

project water

A project born in response to the inexcusable fact that more homeless people die from dehydration in the summer months than from exposure in the winter months.

Applications for Water are now Closed Thank you for Applying! Event Day - June 19th 2024

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CONTINUES TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION TO HELP THE HOMELESS SURVIVE LIFE ON THE STREET!

Thank you, Jody! The clients really loved the kits - they will help us build stronger relationships with people on the streets going forward (and giving people much needed items!) Same with the water! Actually the kit allowed me to connect with the one gentleman who was so upset and now I will be assisting him going forward. As you could see, some people just need to tell their story and receive some sign that others care. Thank you 🙂 I look forward to working together again in future.

To The Bargains Group Team, Thank you, Project Water is magnificent, as is Project Winter Survival. Your team is amazing, and we at Blythwood can’t thank you enough for everything you do to get the word out that Toronto has a crisis when it comes to homelessness and the marginalized. What you manage to do is such an incredible undertaking and you always pull it off seamlessly despite all the big and little problems that occur to execute such a major event.

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!

Thank you for what you are doing. We discussed Project Winter Survival with our kids and we decided that rather than buy each other a $100 gift this year for Christmas, each of us would donate this money to Project Winter Survival in order to help people in need stay warm this winter!

Your support helps us continue in our mission and to assist those in our community. 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.
