Christmas campaign

Verdun families need your generosity more than ever. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Toujours ensemble (TE) team has had to adapt the Christmas campaign to comply with public health measures. This means that sponsorships have been replaced with the purchase of food baskets and gift cards for TE families. This change will help us reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Thank you for your understanding and generosity!

Starting in November, the TE team will don their elf hats to recreate the magic of the holidays with the traditional Christmas campaign! Thanks to the contribution of our many generous donors, sponsors, volunteers and partners, we have set up three initiatives to give over 250 families (or 1,000 people) a joyous holiday season :

 

  • Distribution of 250 food baskets to TE families and to the Verdun/Île-des-Sœurs community
  • Gift cards to children of TE families
  • Distribution of 20 cheques of $125 through The Gazette Christmas Fund

How you can contribute ?

Christmas baskets

Offer a food basket that will bring some holiday magic to a family this season. Each basket contains everything to make a wonderful festive meal along with enough food to last at least a week.

Each basket can cost between $50 and $150. Since every donation is important, you can also donate any amount you wish.

To feed one or more families, fill out the online form by clicking here. A tax receipt will be automatically sent to you via email.

You can also send a cheque made out to Toujours ensemble at :
