Residential streets in Toronto are starting to look a little different, as rainbow wrapped trees continue to pop up to show support for frontline workers and healthcare heroes.

Started by local charitable organization Abbey's Goal, the colourful display of support is helping raise money for The Stop, a local organization that addresses food insecurity in the community.

Abbey's Goal was created in memory of Abbey Tran, who lost her life to a rare blood condition when she was just nine years old.

In the hopes of spreading support in Abbey's name, the organization says it's been making rainbows everywhere it can by creating rainbow kits that can be used to wrap trees, posts, or pillars.

Those wanting to show their support can purchase their own DIY rainbow kit by donating the suggestion of $20 for orders under five kits, and $10 for orders over 5 kits. The kits are available in Etobicoke through contactless porch pick-up. You can donate online, and order a kit through text.

Here’s a look at some of the homes displaying rainbow trees here in Toronto.
