I am thankful for the strong team of partners at MJKO, including the 14 Division Toronto Police Services, Kiwanis Toronto, local volunteers, my board, and my staff. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the recent Open House due to knee surgery on May 26th. However, I was not worried because MJKO has learned over the past decade that we can rely on our extended family, which is exactly what happened at the event.
I want to express my gratitude to our community partners and funders who generously supported the Open House, including Zabiha Halal, ParticipACTION Canada, Meridian Credit Union (King & Shaw), The Period Purse, Toronto Police Services 14 Division & the 14 Division Community Police Liaison Committee, Paula Lawlor, The Kindness Charity, and our landlord, St. Johns Polish National Catholic Cathedral.
Shout out to our VIP guests:
