No power, no problem, just take it outside!

No power, no problem, just take it outside!

The new clothing giveaway was a tremendous success once again this year with some 2400 people assisted.

Sun Youth’s traditional annual new clothing giveaway for low income families was a tremendous success again this year with some 2400 people assisted on August 16 and 17 2016.

The staff and volunteers were in for a surprise though when they arrived to the organization’s headquarters on the second day of distribution. Due to the intense rain of the previous day, a great part of the city was in the dark, powerless, including the Saint-Urbain street old Baron Byng High school! Not letting this back luck deter them and taking into account the line up of people already present, the team brought some tables and all the clothes outside in Sun Youth’s side parking, creating a festive atmosphere.

With the new school year beginning, increased expenses impose additional hardship for needy families in Montreal. Sun Youth’s free clothing distribution in adult sizes is intended for them. Such a charitable event would not have been possible without generous donations of clothing from Modern Eternity Maternity Coats and Apparel, VF Imagewear Canada Inc., Quebec Copier, JoNoCo Copier and Paragone Inc. to whom Sun Youth expresses its sincere thanks.
