Chiroposture Montréal celebrates a record year of food collect for Sun Youth!

In last week’s article, various ways to help Sun Youth support families in need during the holiday season were mentioned. Among these, people were invited to organize money and food drives at their workplace, and to include stimulating challenges to maximize the impact of these initiatives.

Since the article was published, Sun Youth got excellent news! Chiroposture Montréal announced on Facebook last weekend : “Yippee! We did it! Thanks to your generosity, we have raised $6000 in money and food donations! This is our all-time record! Sun Youth Organization will make a lot of people happy! Thaaaaaanks!”

A simple approach that bares fruit

Dr. Pascale Dion, chiropractor, has been organizing Christmas drives for Sun Youth for a dozen years, and she has found creative ways to encourage giving. During one week, the clinic offers its patients a $50 worth treatment free of charge in exchange for a donation of money or non-perishable food of equal value. New patients are entitled to a free initial consultation worth $180 if they provide a grocery bag of $40 or more.

“By volunteering a little bit of our time, it allows our team to promote both the company and chiropractic, thank our patients, and most importantly help those who need it most, with the collaboration of our partners at Sun Youth. It’s a win-win-win situation: the company, the patient and the population, everyone wins! It is a real pleasure to do this collect with the patients, who participate with great enthusiasm and show a lot of generosity.”

When asked about her motivation to engage in this process, Mrs. Dion tells us: “I believe that we enjoy certain privileges, and that it is our duty to help others. It is very important for Chiroposture to give back to the community.”

Chiroposture Montreal is located at 6201, Chateaubriand Street. You can visit their site at chiroposturemontreal.com.

We invite you all to set up an office collect at your workplace and find, as did Chiroposture Montreal, strategies specific to your company to encourage your team and your clients to donate generously. If this is not possible, remember that your cash donations are always welcome and do the greatest good to those in need: visit sunyouthorg.com webpage where you will find an online donation form.
