West Island Mommies fans – we are calling on you to help out this holiday season!
We are teaming up with local food bank On Rock to help families in need in the West Island this holiday season. On Rock is a food bank located in Pierrefonds that delivers much needed food to 200 families every week. For Christmas they will be delivering a food basket to each of these families so that they can enjoy a traditional Christmas meal and with the food basket, they also include a box of gifts for the children under 18 in the family.
This year we will be helping to collect new toys/items/gift cards so that each of these families will have something to put under the tree for their kids. This is where you come in! Here is what they are in need of:
- Ages 1-4
- Ages 5-7
- Ages 8-10
- Ages 11-13
- Ages 14 and up
While they are in need of gifts for all ages, the older groups are always the hardest to fill, so we want to help them in all age groups. New toys for the younger ages are great, but they are looking for gift cards to give out to the older kids as well. A suggested amount for the gift cards would be about $10 to $15 for some shopping (ie. Fairview) or perhaps to the movies.
All gifts should be dropped off unwrapped, and there are various drop-off points in the West Island. We have 5 drop off locations this year. For Gift cards please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
