Are you looking for ways to give back to your community this holiday season?
While the act of giving back can be done in so many different ways, here are just some (of many) wonderful organizations and shelters you can support in the Montreal community this holiday season:
Donate to Share the Warmth
Share the Warmth is a non-profit organization that works hard to help fight hunger and poverty. By donating to Share the Warmth, you can help support one of their 5,675 families that they provide for annually.
Donate clothing and household items to The Salvation Army
Give your unused items a second life by donating to The Salvation Army. Some of the donations they accept include: accessories, antiques, clothing, computers, electronics, housewares, books, seasonal items, textiles, and toys.
Donate to Chez Doris
Chez Doris is a day shelter that offers services and programs to meet the most basic and immediate needs of vulnerable and homeless women. By donating to Chez Doris, you will help their team’s mission to provide personal hygiene products, health and mental services, housing placement, and so much more.
Organize a Food Drive with Moisson Montréal
Every year, thousands of families struggle to put food on the table in Montreal alone. Give back this holiday season by organizing your very own food drive with Moisson Montréal. Keeping in mind of healthy food and personal items, they are always looking for donations like rice, pastas, cereals, coffee, canned goods, infant formula, and personal hygiene items.
Make a donation to Centraide
Centraide’s mission is to make the most important social issues such as poverty and exclusion unignorable. From supporting children in their education, to focusing on the inclusion of vulnerable and marginalized communities, their many focuses are all interconnected and depend on one another. By donating to Centraide, you will help join the fight in putting an end to poverty and social exclusion in the lives of the most vulnerable in Greater Montreal.
