Moisson Montreal is asking for your generosity over the long weekend. It says it's far from achieving its goal in its annual Great Food Drive for Children.
The organisation needs $200,000 by Monday but as of Thursday it had raised only $50,000.
The monetary donations and non-perishable food items will help 20,000 babies and toddlers that do not have enough to eat.
“We know that we can help other family members with what we have but only 1 percent of what we receive on a yearly basis actually aims at little children so if we don’t reach our objective we’re not going to be able to help as many children,” Carla Markus, communications director for Moisson Montreal said.
For every 1 dollar donation, Moisson Montreal gives 17.
You can make a monetary donation here.
You can also visit one of the participating Uniprix stores to drop-off non-perishable food items, baby food and diapers.
