Forty-Seven Schools Get in the Spirit of Giving

Montreal - Friday, December 16, 2016

A total of 47 schools and centers participated in this year’s campaign, joining 50 local businesses in collecting non-perishable goods, toiletries and toys for 10 different charities: Share The Warmth, West Island Assistance Fund, Mile-End Mission, Renaissance Montreal, Park Extension Share Store, MultiCaf, Nazareth Community, Batshaw Youth and Family Services, La Mosaique and the N.D.G. Food Depot. 

In all, the combined efforts generated 1,400 boxes of non-perishable food, toys and miscellaneous items. These boxes were then transported by the Canadian Grenadier Guards to Vincney Massey Collegiate where their leadership students volunteered to sort and categorize the donations.

I’m extremely proud of our students,” said Franca Cristiano, Principal of Vincent Massey Collegiate. “There is a big commitment to community service at Vincent Massey Collegiate and our leadership students put the Spirit of Giving campaign in their heart and soul. We were honoured to serve as the sorting facility and we look forward to participating once again next year.

During the campaign, CTV also featured seven different school-organized activities. To view these broadcasts, please follow this link:
