Fun ways to give during the Holidays

Once again this year, Sun Youth is getting ready to help thousands of families in need during the Holiday period. To launch this major operation, the organization will need as much help as it can get. If you are interested in giving to Sun Youth this year, there are many ways to do so.

The traditional methods

For many people, online donation is the simplest option: Sun Youth’s website offers an online secure donation platform which delivers income taxes receipt automatically. For more traditional donors, you can still send cheques or call in. If you forget, Sun Youth volunteers will be there to remind you, standing at major street corners on December 5, for the Great food drive (Grande Guignolée des médias).

Do it together!

Another great way to help is to organize office collects. “In some companies, the departments challenge each other to see who will raise the most funds. In other companies, 50/50 draws are organized: half of the money raised goes to Sun Youth and the other half is offered to a winner in a draw. These little games are fun incentives that ultimately benefit the people in need, and that’s what really counts”, says Lisa Perrault, volunteer coordinator at Sun Youth. “We accept money,  non-perishable food and new toys. We will be happy to provide posters and donation boxes, and arrange pickups, if necessary.”

Treat yourself to a show!

Another way to help Sun Youth is to attend fundraising events. In November and December, music lovers will enjoy two excellent performances, one from Cadillac Music (at the Wheel Club in NDG on November 22nd) and the other from Isabelle Boulay, at Église St-Jean-Baptiste on the Plateau. Sports fans will have the privilege to see the best college teams compete at the Sun Youth Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament from December 19th to the 22nd. The money raised during these events will allow Sun Youth to fund its Holiday activities. See the Events section on the Sun Youth website for details.

O, Christmas Tree!

Finally, we are pleased to announce the return of our Christmas trees sale. All through December, on the corner of Park Avenue and Mount Royal, you will be able to buy a beautiful Christmas tree. What a great way to bring the spirit of the holidays into your house and to us! 

The holiday season is fast approaching and we will need a lot of help to make sure that the most disadvantaged people can spend a nice Christmas. We hope we can count on your cooperation and generosity this year.
