Community Matters

The Boulevard Club has been a fixture in the Parkdale, Roncesvalles area since 1905. With interests extending far beyond a group of like-minded individuals focused on their own sport, the Club embraces—and is engaged in—contributing to our community.

The Club is a responsible neighbour that is compassionate and empathetic to the causes that concern our communities, making dedicated efforts to provide positive contributions to non-profit organizations, including the following:

  • Annual Christmas Food Baskets: multiple years of family volunteers assisting in delivering baskets to 230 recipients in the Davenport area

  • Bottle drives: full Member participation with all proceeds to Dovercourt

  • Charity Tennis Tournament: in 2018, the Club held a charity tennis tournament that raised $9,200 to fund Dovercourt’s After School Snack Program, Teaching Garden, and subsidies for camp programs
     

The Boulevard Club has been supporting ‘Adopt A School’ since May 2016—donating over $19,000 in services and cheques—with initiatives including:

  • Grade 3 “Swim To Survive” lessons: assistance to 90+ students

  • Christmas gift drive: presents for students that would not be experiencing a Christmas

  • Book donations and reading program: Members volunteering to assist teachers with weekly reading sessions for students needing extra assistance

  • Badminton program: donated used racquets and summer clothing
     

The Boulevard Club has supported Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (PARC) since 2019, donating over $375,000 to the Community Meal Program along with social and recreational activity donations, including:

  • Annual Gala fundraisers

  • Clothing and shoe drives

  • Valentine’s Day card drive

  • Service ware for the kitchen, including dinnerware, platters, and equipment
     

Since 2015, The Boulevard Club has donated over $40,000 through annual fundraisers.

Since 2012, The Boulevard Club’s tennis program has donated over $129,000 from calcuttas and tournaments, as well as offering tennis camps for kids.

The Boulevard Club supports local artisans at the annual, winter Boulevard Marketplace with a Christmas tree lighting event and vendor tables showcasing local artisans.
