John Beers, Crossroads of the Danforth BIA, Toronto
March 31, 2022
The Friends of Oakridge Park have been putting on events to involve the community of Oakridge in Toronto since 2015. Community Organizer John Beers (a founding member of the group) has helped to bring pumpkin parades, movie nights, markets, community cleanups and “Eco-Days” to a very disengaged neighbourhood.
Finding ways to not only connect residents but local groups and organizations is an effective way to combat a disconnected community.
