Oasis thrives because of the generosity of the broader community. Many churches, organizations and individuals donate to Oasis throughout the year and we could not survive without them. We received valuable grants from all three levels of government. However, at Christmas time many organizations really step up in a special way. To enable us to hold Christmas celebrations for our community members and volunteers a number of organizations affiliated with successful new Canadians came forward including: Carranza law office, LiUNA Local 183 and IA Elevators Inc. Also, the Galleria Shopping Centre held a food drive for Oasis. In addition members of the Toronto Professional Fire Fighter’s Association are coming to help serve our Turkey Dinner and have donated funds to help ensure the meal is tasty and we have the proper equipment to cook it. Thank you all. The Oasis community is grateful.
