CAFTCAD SPRING MOVIE WARDROBE SALE 2019 / spring community clothing giveaway @ st. Lawrence recreation centre
We’d like to thank CAFTCAD and their participants/vendors of the recent Spring Movie Wardrobe Sale for their generosity again! It’s always a pleasure to be a part of this event, and we’re grateful to those who donated clothes and accessories to T-COOR. Thank you to A. Hayes, L. Fung, A. Fulop, J. Amson, D. Brown and Caitlin @ Wear and Now. And to those we didn’t get a chance to have sign our thank you form, we truly appreciate your support! We were able to turn around these items right away - the next weekend at a T-COOR event! Over 300 items given away in a mere 5 hours at the Community Clothing Giveaway at the St. Lawrence Community Recreation Centre! Another 600 items were picked up by 2 of our charity partners to hand out to those in need this same week! So again, just a big thank you to CAFTCAD and a special thanks to a show that recently wrapped!
CAFTCAD FALL MOVIE WARDROBE SALE 2018
Again, we are overwhelmed by the support of the film/tv industry who generously provided more clothing to T-COOR this past October. This time, we partnered with the NORTH YORK HARVEST FOOD BANK who were able to make use of the donations to help the numerous individuals and families they support. Given the amount of clothing, we were also able to ensure that Ve’ahavta and CSO were provided with items to help their clients too.

2nd Annual holiday party
Special thanks to Steve Williams of FILM PORT, Chris Goddard of the CRAFT BRAND COMPANY and BIG ROCK BREWERY again for their generous support of T-COOR for its 2nd Annual Holiday Party this past December. We had a wonderful turnout and many donations which went out to our charities before Christmas! Our group of volunteers was out in full force - special thanks to Liam Thompson, Sarah Margolius, Ben Bratzel, Julie Bratzel, Matt Hotson - and some of our charities' reps were also able to attend and let people know about the good work they do to help those in need.
Thank you again for the continued support of our film industry volunteers and to the various productions that donate their leftover wardrobe and accessories to T-COOR! We try to turn around your donation within 2 weeks which means we always welcome assistance in helping us sort and categorize the items.
2017'S THANK YOUs
We have been busy this first half of 2017 with a generous donation from a TV series which just wrapped after four seasons. They donated men's, women's and children's clothing which has been distributed to our various charities. At some point soon, we hope to be able to publicly acknowledge their kind support which was in excess of 50 racks of clothing and took up two complete rooms filled to capacity in order to sort and distribute!
A BIG THANK YOU to those who helped us with our HOLIDAY PARTY this year which took place at FILM PORT on December 16th, 2016. Despite the weather, we still had a great turnout - about 70 people - and were able to collect over 20+ bags of clothes and toiletries for the charities we support. We want to extend our gratitude to:
FILM PORT (especially Donna & Steve for letting us use the atrium and office)
Chris from THE CRAFT BRAND COMPANY
BIG ROCK BREWERY
FOOD DUDES (for their beautiful cheese and veggie trays)
and the productions at Film Port including HOCKEY WIVES (who generously donated new coats)
