Toque Tuesday- February 5th, 2016
Toque Tuesday, a national initiative lead by Raising the Roof, takes place annually on the first Tuesday in February with events and toque-selling happening in locations across the country.
This year, The Hope Centre is participating by holding a pop up toque shop outside of Welland’s City Hall in Civic Square. The unique event will have volunteers and staff braving the February elements and selling toques and serving Tim Hortons coffee from 8-10 am.
Members of the community are invited to stop at City Hall on their way to work to purchase a Raising the Roof toque and when they do they’ll get a Tim Hortons coffee free!
Proceeds from toque sales help fund homelessness initiatives run by The Hope Centre, programs that support the most vulnerable citizens in Welland who struggle with poverty related issues like homelessness, housing and food insecurity.
Throughout February toques can also be purchased by visiting The Hope Centre at 570 King Street, in Welland. A variety of toques are available for $15, and additionally ball caps and mittens are also available for purchase for $20.
