DECEMBER TOGETHER

DONATIONS OF ALL SIZES ARE WELCOME

The last 8 months have presented many challenges and this is even more true for some of our neighbors. The holiday season, when all services are closed, will be even more difficult.

The NDG Community Council is launching a fundraising campaign for the "December Together" project. In compliance with the conditions of the COVID, we are proposing a partnership with local businesses to deliver hot meals during the holiday season to approximately 600 residents who are experiencing more difficult times either socially or financially. A meal, a visit from a volunteer and a smile is simple and will warm the hearts of hundreds of residents during these difficult times!

We need your support to help us support as many people as possible. This is an opportunity to bring some comfort and support to the NDG neighbourhood.
The NDG Community Council is, since 1942, working to improve NDG residents' quality of life. Since March, we have worked tirelessly to make sure no one is left behind. We have developed a Breaking Social Isolation program to connect with residents online and through the phone, we are doing information and referral on call and also doing wellness calls. The Council is also offering free tax clinics to help residents living with modest or low-income. Along with our partners, we identify issues in the community and find solutions. Giving to the NDG Community Council is supporting the community's most vulnerable members in many different ways!

Why should I donate to the NDG Community Council?

The NDG Community Council has noticed a big difficulty during the COVID pandemic: many NDG residents are isolated due to a lack of technology. Either they cannot afford the material and the Internet connection or they do not have the necessary knowledge to be able to use it. Every dollar you give is returned directly to the community and could help the Council to connect residents to the Internet in some of the most vulnerable areas in NDG, provide laptops and tablets to seniors, families or isolated individuals and organise training and workshops to develop technological literacy. Allowing vulnerable NDG residents to be better connected to their community is of the utmost importance in this pandemic situation and should be a priority for the near future.
