Supporting our community

This year more than ever is the time to show our solidarity and extend our support to the Montreal community.

How do you choose between rent and food? How do you stay concentrated in school with an empty stomach? Poverty and social exclusion are daily realities for about one out of six people and about one out of five children in Greater Montreal.

Please join your fellow faculty, students, and staff in making a donation to a vast network of community agencies supported by Centraide. All of these organizations help vulnerable individuals and families on the Island of Montreal, in Laval, and on the South Shore. Many have McGill connections, such as Santropol Roulant, Head and Hands, and the Genesis Legal Clinic. In the weeks to come, we will be introducing you to members of our community who are working with these organizations in the McGill Reporter. Please stay tuned.
