ShareLife is the official charitable fund raising organization of the Archdiocese of Toronto. It was created in 1976, by Archbishop Philip Pocock, as a single means of funding Catholic Charities, St. Augustine's Seminary, and Third World Missions and Development. Now in its 38th year of helping the whole community the number of agencies funded by ShareLife has increased significantly, from 8 to over 40.
Since 1976, ShareLife Catholic agencies have provided unconditional care and support for the troubled, vulnerable and needy in our communities and around the world. ShareLife’s agencies help more than 200,000 people in a variety of areas, including children and youth, families at risk, women in need of shelter and abuse counseling, services for single and teen parents, the elderly and refugees, as well as disaster relief when warranted. ShareLife funded agencies have an "open intake" policy, helping anyone in need of assistance, regardless of religious affiliation.
The agencies rely heavily on ShareLife's fundraising efforts to maintain their level of service. We, at Precious Blood, as all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Toronto are participating fully in the ShareLife fundraising campaign through our parish, school or place of business.
