Let’s Help Lou & Daphne Get Through The Lockdown

If you’ve ever worked at SOCAN’s Toronto office or at a surrounding office building on Valleybrook Drive, some of the things you’re probably missing most in the pandemic lockdown are the hearty food and friendly conversation you’d recieve every weekday from Lou and Daphne at Chris’ Coffee Shop. Let’s give generously to ensure that they get back to business when we do, so we can continue to enjoy their fresh coffee, homemade soups and sandwiches, and smiling faces.

As restrictions continue to be enforced to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 and keep us all safe, tens of thousands of small businesses across the country are struggling. Chris's Coffee Shop, has been a North York office mainstay for many years. The tiny deli-style shop normally serves up crowd-pleasing hearty soups, coffees, homemade baked treats, and their ever-popular breakfast sandwich. With the office buildings in the commercial area now mostly empty, Chris's Coffee Shop has seen a massive decline in business. The shop is a staple on Valleybrook Drive and, though they would never ask for it, owners and siblings Daphne and Lou could use our collective help. We encourage you to share the link to the GoFundMe account with friends, family, and on social media, and consider making a small donation to help raise the goal amount for Chris's Coffee Shop, a special part of the extended SOCAN family.
