At Welcome Hall Mission, we’re preparing to celebrate our 125th anniversary of providing outreach and support. During all that time, generous donors like you have remained committed to supporting our work and we could not be more grateful. This important milestone also underlines the sad fact that hunger and poverty in Montreal continue to be difficult realities for the thousands who turn to us for help each year.
Your gifts have made a difference! You provided school supplies and new shoes to children at our back-to-school event, Rentrée la tête haute, in August. Leading up to Thanksgiving, you helped provide enough food to serve more than 400 meals per day.
As Christmas approaches, the days are getting shorter and the nights longer—and colder. We see the need around us increasing as disadvantaged Montrealers struggle to find enough layers to ward off winter’s chill. Christmas is meant to be a special time when families and loved ones gather together, and that’s why we’re preparing a special meal on December 19th for Montrealers who are trying to cope with homelessness and poverty.
Just as you’ve supported us this far, I hope you will continue to give so that we can continue to offer life-changing services.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas,
