Serving Opportunities & Partnerships

Coldest Night of the Year

It’s cold out there. And on February 23rd, our team is going to do something about it. Together with thousands of Canadians across the country, we’re walking to support and serve hungry, homeless, and hurting people and families in our community. To donate or join our team register below.

The Crisis Pregnancy Centre

Markham-Stouffville

The Crisis Pregnancy Centre has served women in the Markham-Stouffville area for more than 20 years. They provide free care and support to women in unplanned pregnancies, post-abortion, and who are involved in single parenting.

The Markham Foodbank

Markham

The leanest time of the year for Canadian food banks is July – August. The Markham Food Bank has difficulty providing the minimum amount of grocery support during those months and can give very little variety. Our annual June food drive helps fill this gap!

Centre for Dreams

Markham

The Centre for Dreams is a place in the Markham community where adults with developmental disabilities can come to build relationships and enhance their lives through education in life skills, academics and vocational training.

The Language Cafe

The Language Cafe provides informal drop-in opportunities where you can enjoy a beverage and snack while practising English with fluent locals and other newcomers. We meet Fridays from 10am to 12pm. All levels of English speakers are welcome!

For more information, contact languagecafe@thebridgemarkham.com.
