Creating Stronger, Healthier, and Environmentally Sustainable Communities
Greenrock IMPACT is committed to creating stronger, healthier, and environmentally sustainable communities through our support of charitable organizations across the Greater Toronto Area and Canada.
GREENROCK Launches $1.5 Million COVID-19 Relief Fund
COVID-19 has created unique and extreme challenges for our city and communities. GREA through its Greenrock Charitable Trust has pledged $900,000 towards charitable organizations through its COVID-19 Relief Fund to address concerns surrounding food security, mental health, domestic abuse, and senior care during this crisis. The first $300,000 tranche was donated to the following charities: $150,000 to the Daily Bread Food Bank and $30,000 each to Stella’s Place, Kids Help Phone, The 519, The Redwood, and Sprint Senior Care. The remaining $600,000 will be donated to charities across Canada based on what Greenrock’s Board of Directors and IMPACT team perceive to be the most vital needs at the time.
GREA’s IMPACT committee will continue to seek ways to support its community partners during this crisis.
GREA is also cognisant of the financial hardships its residents may face during this time. While our three levels of Government have promised various measures of support, it will take time for these relief funds to be disbursed.
Greenrock Property Management Ltd. has created a program whereby residents in need can choose to have their last month’s rent (LMR) deposit used as a credit towards their regular rent payments. Residents may choose to use a portion of this credit, or the full amount that can be replenished in the future at no additional cost or interest.
GREA will also be gifting $300 in grocery gift cards to every suite in Greenrock’s 2000 suite portfolio—$100 for each suite in April, May, and June 2020.
Special Thanks from our Recipients
“We applaud Greenrock’s commitment to supporting residents and charitable organizations during COVID-19. For Stella’s Place, Greenrock’s generous gift of $30,000 means we can meet the heightened demand for our secure mobile chat application, BeanBagChat, by extending service hours and hiring more peer support workers for evening and weekend shifts when young adults struggling with their mental health are most vulnerable and in need of connection, validation and support.”
