City of Toronto, Toronto Police Service, Jarvis Collegiate and Sony Pictures Releasing Canada come together to clean-up graffiti vandalism
The City of Toronto, students of Jarvis Collegiate and officers from Toronto Police Service, 51 Division, will join forces with Sony Pictures Releasing Canada, in anticipation of the upcoming movie, "The Amazing Spider-Man", to remove graffiti vandalism from the Central Neighbourhood House on Saturday, June 23. The event will start at 11 a.m.

Sony Pictures Releasing Canada has donated cleaning materials and paint to assist the students, volunteers and City staff who will come together to celebrate the hero in all of us, as they give their time and energy to help the local community remove the graffiti vandalism from the Central Neighbourhood House. A special mural will also be installed on Saturday.

"Reducing graffiti vandalism is one way that we can improve the safety and overall look of our community," said Councillor Cesar Palacio (Ward 17 - Davenport), Chair of the City's Licensing and Standards Committee. "It's up to all of us to volunteer, get involved and be heroes in our neighbourhoods."

Founded in 1911, Central Neighbourhood House is the second oldest settlement house in Toronto. Since its establishment, the staff and volunteers at the Central Neighbourhood House have been working with local residents to provide programs for children and youth, new Canadians, families, women and seniors who live in the area. Central Neighbourhood House is located at 349 Ontario St.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" officially opens across Canada on July 3.
