A Different Booklist Cultural Centre (ADBCC) recently partnered with the Afri-Can FoodBasket and Pan Fantasy Steelband to host Filling the Gap: Love, Light and Hope Campaign – an emergency fund set up in response to COVID-19 “to support and give back to the Caribbean and African Canadian communities.”
The proceeds from this fund provide food items and meals to seniors, single-parent families and those with special needs.
The Cultural Centre is also using social media to provide online programming for children who are at home.
“People should check out our FaceBook site and watch what we have on A Different Booklist Cultural Centre (ADBCC) YouTube channel,” said Itah Sadu, co-owner of the ADBCC.
” Folks will see Welcome to Blackhurst Moments. an online exhibition that commemorates the contributions of Black immigrants to the Bathurst Steet neighbourhood.
“All our various social media sites are there to provide uplighting stories, tips, and a touch of humanity,” Sadu added.
” We have had mini concerts from our supporters and forums of discussion that are both local and international in scope”
