Norm Kelly, Peace Collective & WoodGreen!

Earlier this year, WoodGreen was approached by a very popular and successful group of young entrepreneurs about a project they wanted to launch that would support WoodGreen’s Newcomer Youth Settlement Program.

Peace Collective has produced the wildly popular “Toronto Vs. Everybody” line of apparel, as well as “Home is Toronto” and most recently launched the Canadian Built series featuring the likeness of Toronto City Councillor Norm Kelly – also known as the #6dad to his 280,000 Twitter followers.  All of the proceeds from this line of apparel will be donated to WoodGreen’s Newcomer Youth Settlement programs!

A group from Peace Collective will be joining our newcomer youth on a bowling field trip later this month. They will be bringing care packages to that event and have also donated 500 Home Is Toronto tees to the Immigrant Services staff & clients.

Check out the news coverage about the project:
