Raising The Roof Toque Campaign


Let’s put a Cap on Homelessness!

The Raising the Roof campaign is a collective effort to “put a cap” on youth and adult homelessness, and Wesley is proud to play in a role in this important initiative!

The sale of Raising the Roof toques, ballcaps and socks in Hamilton supports two of our local programs, Wesley Centre Drop-In and Wesley Youth Housing.

Thank you to Waterdown District High School and their SOLID student group for hosting the Launch event on Giving Tuesday!
