On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a gift box of Silk Road Tea!

This holiday season, Threshold Housing Society has partnered with Silk Road Tea to create some delicious, feel-good teas – and they’ll warm your heart, too.

With all of the proceeds going towards Threshold, these gift boxes not only make the perfect present for the holiday season, but they also help provide at-risk youth with safe homes this Christmas.

The 12 Tea flavours include Angelwater, Berry Victoria, Beau-tea-ful Skincare, English Breakfast, Express Chai, Imperial Earl Grey, Jade Spring, London Fog, Philosophers Brew, Quench, Sour Cherry, and Winter Warrior. 

The tea gift boxes are available to purchase online, and can be picked up in downtown Victoria at 1524 Fort Street – office hours are Monday to Friday – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

They can also be ordered over the phone at (250) 383-8830 ext. 1001 – and they will even deliver them right to you!

This November, Threshold Housing Society is Shining a Light on Youth Homelessness, and believe that every youth in our community deserves a safe home.

They hope to spread awareness of the work they do and raise funds to continue being able to provide safe housing, support services, and community to at-risk youth.

On any given night, there are over 150 youth who are experiencing homelessness in the Capital Region, with countless more couch surfing or living in unsafe housing situations, and Threshold Housing Society looks to end youth homelessness.

Threshold will also be hosting a Winter Carnival on Saturday, November 30th to continue their fundraising efforts – including the lighting of the largest tree in Bastion Square, live music, hot chocolate, and Christmas themed activities –  such as crafting ornaments, decorating gingerbread houses, face painting, Santa, and guest speakers!

Also, for the entire month of November, you can head down to Darcy’s in Bastion Square and for every purchase of a Driftwood Brewery Beer, proceeds go to Threshold Housing.
