Every winter, we hold our winter clothing drive to provide warmth to Toronto’s homeless and street-involved youth. In partnership with Light Patrol, a mobile outreach program we, with the generosity of our customers have collected, cleaned and sorted thousands of pieces of winter clothing for Light Patrol.

Prom attire for students in need

Gibson’s teamed up with New Circles, collecting, cleaning and delivering hundreds of dresses, suits and formal accessories. During prom season, New Circles connects graduating students in need with formal attire. In our Prom Boutique, students are able to select dresses, suits, accessories and shoes for their upcoming prom at no cost. This program ensures that all students an attend their high school prom and milestone event feeling confident.

Rob, Nancy and Linley. It was so great to see you up at Open House. I hope you enjoyed seeing camp and experience the magic of Ooch - which you have helped create for the past 21 years. Thanks for your amazing commitment to Ooch. - Diana, KatieCamp Ooch for children with cancer

Through The McConnell Classic, Gibson’s has been fundraising for Camp Ooch for over 21 years. It costs $3500 to send a camper for two weeks and the classic has made camp a dream come true for over 425 kids.
