FirstService Residential, Ontario’s leading residential property management company, partnered with Samaritan’s Feet, a global non-profit humanitarian relief organization working to end poverty, to provide almost $10,000 worth of new shoes to children in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Funds were raised through a collaborative effort between Samaritan’s Feet and FirstService Residential, which will provide more than 200 children in the Jane-Finch community with a new pair of shoes. More than 1,000 FirstService Residential associates and several board members residing in its managed communities participated in this charitable event. The shoe distribution event will take place on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Harvest Christian Church on 196 Toryork Drive.
