MOISSON MONTRÉAL EXCEEDS THE OBJECTIVE OF ITS CAMPAIGN HUNGRY FOR VACATION!
Montreal, August 22, 2019 – Moisson Montréal is proud to announce that the Hungry for Vacation campaign raised $80,200 in donations in one month.
“The funds raised have helped Moisson Montréal to maintain, throughout the summer, the distribution of food to our partner organizations. These organizations feed thousands of children on the Island of Montreal. During this season, many families no longer benefit from school food assistance or other programs that suspend their activities until the Fall” said François Jolicoeur, Director of Business Development at Moisson Montréal.
Each donation of $1 enables Moisson Montréal to distribute over $15 worth of food to community organizations serving families in need. 35.8% of the beneficiaries of our agencies’ food pantry programs are children.
THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS AND PARTNERS
A big thank you to everyone who made a donation. Moisson Montréal thanks all donors of the Hungry for Vacation campaign including La Ronde and the Malouf Family Fund of the Foundation of Greater Montreal. The wonderful closing event of the campaign was made possible thanks to the generosity of our partner Québecor. The delicious BBQ was a courtesy of Penske.
