Mortgage brokers and staff from Invis-Mortgage Intelligence delivered more than 100,000 items of clothing and supplied to homeless shelters across Canada this week.
The Angels in the Night program began in 2002 and has raised around $4 million to date in cash and in kind donations for homeless shelters.
Funds are used to buy items identified by local homeless charities as most in demand, typically including coats, snow pants, rain ponchos, boots, hats, gloves, sweatshirts, pants, t-shirts, socks, underwear, pajamas, blankets/bedding and backpacks, and personal toiletries.
“As Mortgage Brokers in the business of helping people find their homes, it seems right to extend some support and help those who might not have a warm home to go to every night,” says Cameron Strong, CEO, Invis-Mortgage Intelligence. “Our brokers, employees and business partners are passionate about this cause and work tirelessly to make it a success each year.”
The annual program delivers items on the second Tuesday of December.
