Support TNO Now!

  • The TNO hockey program is an amazing opportunity for kids who otherwise would not be able to afford to play hockey to get on the ice. From equipment, to instructors, this program helped my kids build confidence and friendships they would never have been able to get otherwise. Thank you TNO for all you do!

    - Hockey Dad & Volunteer
  • The TNO Foodbank is filling a great need for the community. The staff and volunteers are very supportive and considerate. Thank you TNO for your continued support and service. It is greatly appreciated!

Ways to contribute

Your support goes a long way

  • Your contribution has the power to change their world—from helping a family put food on the table to providing a woman with the support she needs to leave an abusive household. Whether it be a one-time gift or a monthly donation, every contribution counts.
  • TNO – THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ORGANIZATION offers many volunteer opportunities, whether you have one hour or more of time to donate. If you are interested in working with children and youth, community economic development, or helping the residents, this is the right place for you. Even during the pandemic TNO was able to offer virtual volunteer opportunities that continue to support the community during this difficult time.
