Straight To the Streets 2009

For the 4th year in a row Tomy Bewick, BSP’s co-founder, organized the Straight to the Streets event.  the premise is simple.  Collect warm clothes, jackets, and blankets then distribute them staright to the people living on the streets who need them.

This past Saturday, November 28th saw a couple dozen people meeting up at the corner of Queen & Bathurst in Toronto to do just that.  Digital Journalist, KJ Mullins, was there to cover the event (

This year was my first time participating.  Let tell you, it was exciting.  I truly believe I came away with more than I gave out.  I plan to make this annual tradition and I’d encourage you to do the same.  Whether it’s collecting or being there to hand the items out.
