TRAVELSAVERS helps out

TRAVELSAVERS is a sponsor of Tourism Cares in Canada and the US and last week volunteered to enhance the green space around St James Town in Toronto. The TRAVELSAVERS team helped build picnic tables and cleaned and refreshed planting beds. St. James Town is the largest high-rise community in Canada. It has been identified as one of 13 economically deprived neighbourhoods within the city. Because of the “vertical living” that is created in high-rise communities, a priority for the city is to bring people down to the street level and create a sense of community in public and existing green spaces. The city is making improvements to increase services like job training, youth engagement and health services.
