It started with a schoolgirl’s kindness to a homeless man huddled against the cold over a sewer grate. Dozens of donated blankets, gloves and socks later, Angels of Mercy is a group of young people devoted to helping the homeless in our city.
Their heartfelt impulse to help others in need inspired Daniels’ President Mitchell Cohen to compose the song Angels of Mercy which is sung by the renowned Jackie Richardson along with the Regent Park School of Music Choir.
The Daniels Corporation is donating this inspirational song to Second Harvest who are using it to raise funds to help win the fight against hunger.
Supporting Second Harvest is a labour of love for Daniels, because we share Second Harvest's vision that no one need ever go hungry in the communities we serve.
For a minimum donation of $10.00 you will be able to download the musical tribute Angels of Mercy. All proceeds go to Second Harvest. Donate today! Give generously.
Every day, Second Harvest rescues excess fresh food and delivers it to over 200 community agencies in Toronto which serve children, youth, adults and seniors in need of support. Delivering enough food for over 19,000 meals a day to our agency network, it is transformed into hot meals at shelters, community and drop-in centres, children and youth programs, and seniors programs, or it is distributed to individuals at neighbourhood food banks. Second Harvest is proud to be Canada's largest food rescue program.
