New Circles is a volunteer-driven agency that offers clothing services, community referrals and skills building programs to residents in Toronto’s Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park and Victoria Village neighbourhoods.

Along with food and shelter, clothing is essential, having presentable clothing helps to build self esteem and confidence. The New Circles Clothing Program provides qualifying families with access to free gently used and new clothing, shoes, accessories and other basic necessities. Their unique boutique-like set up creates a comfortable and welcoming environment to select quality items for the whole family.


The Corsage Project is a community-based program of the Children’s Aid Foundation organized by a committee of volunteers from the Toronto area. The organization helps economically disadvantaged high school students attend their prom. Girls who are referred are formally invited to attend a Boutique Ball where, assisted by a personal shopper, they are able to select a new dress, shoes, accessories and receive a mini-makeover all free of charge! This fun and stylish annual event is a wonderful way to ensure that no student is denied the opportunity to celebrate the achievement of high school graduation because of cost.
