2015 Toque Campaign - We've got you covered from head to toe!

Thanks to our 50+ Partner Agencies, National Partners CTN, Intact and Paul Davis Systems, and supporters across the country, we sold over 40,000 toques & socks during the 2015 Toque Campaign! This tremendous success will benefit long-term solutions to homelessness nation-wide.

To date Raising the Roof has generated almost $4 million for local Partner Agencies working towards long-term solutions to homelessness. Together we can make a difference, one toque (or pair of socks!) at a time.

 Where the money goes:

•    80% of net proceeds from the Toque Campaign benefit grassroots community Partner Agencies helping homeless people in cities and towns across Canada
•    The remaining 20% of net proceeds supports Raising the Roof’s national homeless initiatives, e.g. Child & Family Homelessness and Youthworks

Toque Tuesday 2015

Toque Tuesday took place on February 3, 2015.

A list of Toque Tuesday events is available here.

      The only thing more Canadian than a toque is the generosity of our people who understand that homelessness is  unacceptable, and a problem that can be solved.
