Established in 1985, the JRCC Furniture Depot is the second largest furniture bank in Canada and the only furniture bank in York Region, providing free furniture to families and individuals in need in both northeast Toronto and York Region. They serve as a major support system in poverty reduction, homelessness prevention and basic needs security.
Under the supervision of Tim Abbott of the School of Media, students in the Event & Media Production diploma program, Demid and Kathleen, created a high-quality video complete with actors and voiceovers for the JRCC Furniture Depot. Targeting potential clients, this video demonstrates how the organization helps families in need through their services.
In a second phase of the project, Demid worked on a donor-facing video to help the organization’s fundraising endeavors.
