CM Group for Resilience Montreal

Christina Miller Group for Resilience Montreal

As we head into the winter season, the Christina Miller Real Estate Group has decided to come together to collect warm clothing, socks, blankets, toiletries and food for Resilience Montreal.

Resilience Montreal is a non-profit day shelter situated on the corner of Atwater and Sainte Catherine, offering food, a place to sleep, clean clothes, and support to anyone in need. For several decades, Cabot Square in Montreal has been a gathering place for indigenous people, especially Inuit, and Resilience Montreal is always there to provide shelter, food, support, love safety and community.

We will be collecting the donations at our office in Westmount (326 Victoria Avenue) and then we will deliver it all to the Resilience drop-off location.
We encourage you to join us by dropping off your donation and signing our community gift card. Together we can make a difference!

VOLUNTEERING

At this point we have had a outpouring of new volunteers, to be manage all the new volunteers we are asking interested individuals to email our volunteer coordinator Hannah at resilience.volunteer@gmail.com

PREPARED MEALS

We have been requesting for those that want to prepare meals to cook meals that can be easily made in bulk (usually enough for 20 serving or more) that are portioned and distributed for our participants. In practise chili, rice, and soup seem to work best for people donating and for us to portion and distribute. We are also doing a special call out for prepared meat thats can be used to make stews, burritos and shepherds pie.

Sandwiches are always appreciated. They can be any type you want but ideally should be individually wrapped and come with a card with what is in them.
