Thank you Pinky for all the great work that you do with caregivers! 

Our Hot Chocolate Day  on October 25, 2018 was such a wonderful and inspiring event!  Around 200 Thorncliffe Park residents enjoyed TNO’s free hot chocolate to warm them up. Thank you all for helping us spread the word. We’d also like to extend our appreciation for the amazing work done by the TNO’s Outreach Committee for putting this event together. We know what a huge effort it took to make the event so great.
