H&H Holiday On-Line Feel-Good Fest!

Do you believe in Santa? No?
Well, how about food security?
Wanna help out but have no time to contribute?
Let us be your community worker elves!

We invite you to lend us support by donating to our holiday baskets and emergency food pantry!!! The holiday season is fast approaching and many low-income youth and families in our community will be struggling to make ends meet. At Head & Hands we alleviate some of the pressure during this difficult time by providing holiday baskets to those in need.

Your donation contributes to this unique and time-sensitive food-security service, one which positively affects many of the most marginalized members of our community. Your donation also helps to stock our emergency food pantry which is an indispensable service within our holistic approach. We know that food security is an essential and basic ingredient in fostering the kind of community we want to see. We also know that often folks fly under the radar of other food security resources. For example, a youth who comes to Head & Hands for our medical clinic, or is met in the metro by one of our street workers, can leave Head & Hands with a bag of food where they wouldn’t necessarily seek out the food bank.

So, yeah! Here’s how you can help:

Donate on-line and write a note indicating that you’d like your gift to be directed towards this essential service:

Or send in your gift by mail:
Head & Hands
P.O. Box 206, Station N.D.G.
Montreal, Quebec H4A 3P5

Or drop it off in person! Please visit us during our opening hours:
5833 Sherbrooke Street West, corner of Melrose in NDG.
Mon-Thurs 10-9:30pm
Friday 10-5pm

We're also interested in new and gently used toys to place under our holiday tree for very young guests as well as non-perishable food items.

Also, forward this to your friends! Or set-up a food drop off box at your workplace. You know. Get creative!
