Winter is coming...

Please donate gently used jackets and blankets 

About Us

We distribute jackets & blankets to the homeless

We drive through the streets of Toronto & provide goods to those who aren't mentally stable enough to seek refuge from the cold. 

We hand out waterproof bags of toiletries

We also accept donations of everyday items to hand out. 

We are 100% volunteer driven

Contact us if you'd like to donate items or your time.

About Us

Our Founders


CTC was founded by Crystal Lengua and is run with the help of her sister Andrea Martin, who are advocates for mental health and see the consequences of addiction for a lot of our city's homeless.  Cover the Cold is fueled by the generous assistance of volunteers, friends and family.

Our History


We began this journey in the early 2000's and have decided to restart the initiative. 

Canadian winters are especially cold, and we are dedicated to delivering warmth to the homeless in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Our Mission


We provide jackets, blankets and toiletries to the homeless in the GTA throughout the winter months. We load up our trucks and head out to hand deliver the goods to men and women who may not take advantage of the shelters and organizations that are available to help...
