In light of Friday's devastating, six alarm fire that forced approximately 1,200 Torontonians to flee their homes, United Jewish Appeal of Greater Toronto has created the Wellesley Fire Emergency Fund.


The 30-storey high rise, located at 200 Wellesley Street East, is run by Toronto Community Housing and is home to many residents living with mental and physical illnesses.


Many of the displaced residents are currently staying at nearby shelters, where they are receiving medical attention, but their need for supplies, including underwear, socks, school supplies, shoes, blankets and towels, continues.


Funds raised through UJA Wellesley Fire Emergency Fund will be allocated to local agencies designated to help these innocent victims in need.


As part of UJA's ongoing commitment to tikkun olam, or "repairing the world," the organization asks you to give in order to help our neighbours during this extremely difficult and frightening time.
