SCCC continues to with our partner agencies, Alexandra Park Community Centre and Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre, to coordinate and deliver emergency and essential services to underserved and vulnerable residents.
We are humbled by the generosity our friends and neighbourhood family have shown during this time. It has helped us ensure those who need it, are able to have a hot meal; those who need supplies or supports, are able to receive them; those who need access to fresh and healthy produce receive hampers and food delivery; those residing in the Alexandra Park encampment, have access to meals and washroom facilities, and those who need technology to stay connected to family, friends and programs at the Centre, have this.
During these challenging times, we know supporting families and vulnerable residents is critical for our holiday season that our neighbourhood can safely celebrate.
Please consider supporting our efforts today. A tax receipt will be issued for all contributions over $20.00.
One of the most immediate challenges our neighbourhood agencies are faced with is capacity to deliver emergency meals to those most in need. Currently, amongst our three organizations, over 200 low-income and underserved individuals across the City receive either a daily hot lunch, a weekly food hamper, or a grocery card. This service fluctuates based on our resources. While we have purchased bicycles, and are working hard to serve those with what we have, we realize we could improve efficiencies, serve more low-income people, and expand our services to include our clients who do not live close by.
We strongly encourage Friends of Scadding Court to help us in our efforts to secure a community van for our neighbourhood. How can you help? You can MAKE A DONATION today! You can CIRCULATE THIS COMMUNITY DRIVE amongst your friends and neighbours, and encourage them to sign up!
You can help us make this happen as we continue to do our best to address the everyday challenges, changes and emerging needs that continue to become more apparent as we fight this pandemic together. Thank you always for your ongoing support.

Alexandra Park Community Centre continues to deliver critical lunchtime meals to low-income, racialized and newcomer seniors living in tall towers in the Alexandra Park/Atkinson Co-op community. Our community elders need us more than ever, now. As the neighbourhood continues to change with its ongoing revitalization, many under-served residents have been further isolated and placed on the margins by this pandemic. For more information on how you can help feed seniors and those in need, please consider supporting Alexandra Park Community Centre. Every dollar counts, please donate in the drop-down box above. Donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.
Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre continues to deliver critical literacy and information/referral services to under-serviced, low-income, often newcomer, adult learners. These times have become even more challenging for isolated, racialized, newcomer low-income communities. Keeping residents connected and learning, engaging and building networks is more important now that ever before. Please consider making a contribution to our adult literacy programs here.
Please know all your funds are going to support critical services and programs in a community that is significantly under-served and often unrecognized as a low-income pocket of a largely middle income neighbourhood.
