We have teamed up with Bistro Merlot to bring a Spring Food drive. This was an initiative that was in the works for a few months before the devastation. We NEED FOOD more than ever now. So many families have lost everything and are in desperate need.

Every month On Rock Community Services, has 210 families they provide food baskets for. The need for food is growing everyday. We need your help.

Calling on all the west islanders for your help more than ever now. We are looking for all types of canned goods. On Rock had a request from their families for more Peanut Butter, Spaghetti Sauce and canned tuna and salmon as they have a current shortage on these 3 items.

This food drive will run until June 2.

They are located at 3541 St. Charles Boulevard, Kirkland.

“YOU’RE AMAZING! (STARRING YOU)”

By Mark Pichora (local author!)

Recommended for kids 4-8

Available at Chapters Pointe-Claire and online.

Named in Kirkus Reviews “BEST BOOKS OF 2016”

Dear West Islanders!

I hope you’ll check out my new Dr. Seuss-inspired book about the human body, “You’re Amazing! (Starring You)”. I did everything I could to make it educational and fun, and to infuse it with all the rhythm and rhyme of classic Seuss.

It’s available in-store at Chapters Pointe-Claire, and online.

If you like it, please help me grow by sharing your ratings and reviews online!

For more info, as well as a sneak peek at my next little project, please check out http://www.markpichora.com.

I hope you enjoy!

Mark

Praise for “You’re Amazing! (Starring You)”

“Louie the Lumin and his two young friends explain some of the human body’s magnificent highlights in this Seussian rhyming book… The wonderful rhymes scan beautifully, making this a delight for reading aloud… the colorful characters and settings accurately capture the whimsy of Dr. Seuss’ work without undermining the biology hidden in the charming rhymes.”

Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review) (Best Books of 2016)

We had a huge outpouring of toy donations along with gift cards. I want to also thank our local businesses that offered to be a drop off location for the numerous toys:

Bistro Merlot

Studio BBG

30minute Hit West Island

Kiddo Active Therapy

Mon Gym West Island

We would not be able to have this amazing turnout without these amazing local companies.  Here are some photos of some of deliveries that were made.
