Our mission statement revolves around some pretty strong words. At NightShift we’re on a mission and the journey is an exciting one.

On Friday, the last Canadian one-cent coin was struck.

They also helped tackle the large mountain of clothing we currently have to sort through as we gather a new season’s worth of clothing donations.  We welcome youth groups on a drop-in or regular basis. On Thursday mornings we are pleased…
