Over the years, we’ve evolved two ways of giving back: the first is regional, by supporting a charity in our city and the second is local, by supporting a youth shelter that’s just 15 minutes’ drive from Cocomira’s factory.
EAT TO THE BEAT – This year marks the 15th anniversary of Eat to the Beat, the annual fundraiser for Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada (Willow). Cocomira will be part of this event, and we encourage you to join us for a fun-filled evening of food, drinks, silent auction action and great music. Over the years, Eat to the Beat has raised over $4 million to support Willow. Visit www.eattothebeat.ca to buy tickets.
YOUTH WITHOUT SHELTER – Anna is a big fan of this non-profit. “The more I learn about Youth without Shelter, the more impressed I am with the work they do.” This agency is an emergency residence and referral agency located in North Etobicoke that serves homeless youth ages 16-24. Anna has prepared meals for the residents - including a yummy dessert; volunteered for ‘Tokens 4 Change’, a fundraiser that helps youth take transit free of charge and donated to ‘Cover Me Urban’, their annual fundraiser.
