In October 2013 Sharon Gilroy-Dreher made her first ask for socks on a Facebook post. It was a happy way to remember her mom and mark what should have been her 80th birthday. Family and friends rose to the challenge and 492 pairs were collected for Out of the Cold shelters.
In the years that followed, the entire community wrapped their arms around this annual campaign. By 2019 over 100 companies, teams and schools were hosting collections. Since that first campaign, ToastyToes Waterloo Region has already distributed 130,000+ pairs of new socks to agencies and programs supporting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our Region.
Forest Glen Public School Playground Project
Forest Glen's "Greening the Glen" project got underway in 2014, as the school has made an effort to enhance their outdoor area with shade trees, armour stone seating, and an outdoor classroom.

The total price tag for the project is estimated to be about $25,000, which will be funded through fundraising programs and other grants.

The Community Players of New Hamburg
In 1984, a small group of enthusiastic individuals got together to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Trinity Lutheran Church in New Hamburg with a presentation of Godspell. This production immediately prompted the planning of another, and another. These productions grew and evolved. The group known as Trinity Community Players made a name for themselves with quality productions and a firm grounding in the community, giving back a portion of proceeds back to local causes. Over time, Trinity Community Players became The Community Players of New Hamburg, or more affectionately, TCP.
Considered by many to be one of the finest community theatre organizations in Ontario, TCP continues to present large-scale musicals on the Trinity Theatre stage each spring, and now a fall drama as well. TCP buys locally whenever possible to support local business, and we provide a yearly scholarship to a Waterloo-Oxford D.S.S. student going on to a post-secondary education in the arts.
Our vision is to create beautiful spaces where intergenerational communities will thrive.
What if we created a community that was intentionally interconnected? A community that was intergenerational, diverse, and also sustainable? What if you could actually afford to live in such a community?
Our mission is to revitalize people and rural communities through equitable housing and social enterprise
Revitalizing will take a 3-pronged approach: Economic Development, Community Living and Equitable Housing.
New Hamburg Water Wheel Project
After rotating along the Nith River for more than 30 years, the New Hamburg Board of Trade (NHBOT) is hoping to give the town's iconic water wheel a much-needed upgrade.
The wooden wheel, a visual nod to New Hamburg's historic milling industry, has sustained decades of damage to its slats and was locked in place last year. It was then that the NHBOT realized repairs had become an upstream challenge.
With the help of University of Guelph students, the board plans to replace the landmark with a more durable COR-TEN weathering steel that could hold up against annual flooding and freezing for half a century.
