As you may know, this year Welcome Hall Mission has been celebrating its 125th year in service of Montreal’s most vulnerable. Our mandate is to bring dignity, hope and transformation to those who need it most, and thanks to our generous donors, this year I feel we have lived up to this legacy.
Our new Marché Bon Accueil is in full swing, serving thousands of customers each week. It warms my heart to see how this innovative concept has improved the experience of our clients, and it’s all thanks to donors like you!
Thanks to your gifts, this summer over 250 children whose parents wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it were able to attend a life-changing week at summer camp!
And finally, thank you to everyone who participated in our Back‑to‑School Matching Campaign, especially the Marcelle and Jean Coutu Foundation. We were completely overwhelmed by the response! Thanks to your gifts, more than 2,800 children received backpacks filled with school supplies to start the year off right.
Now, as we look forward to a busy holiday season, we are preparing to distribute toys to thousands of children, provide Christmas groceries to thousands of families, and welcome thousands of Montrealers in from the cold. With your help, we can make it a season of hope and joy.
