Want to pay-it-forward?
Winter can be hardest for Toronto’s most vulnerable residents, including newcomers. Winter Care Kits (including gloves, hats, hand-warmers, grocery gift cards, and more) will be distributed to local residents experiencing homelessness and poverty. Donations can be made as a top-up to skate/bar transactions; by credit card at onsite “tap” stations; or online at thebentway.ca/wintercarekits.
Please note: Depending on weather, The Bentway Skate Trail may need to close for maintenance or clean up. We work as quickly as possible to re-open the ice, and ask that you please check our website or social media (@thebentway) for updates.
