Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. We collect the boxes and distribute them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations. Operation Christmas Child is an important way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Each year, millions of shoeboxes are packed with gifts by people in Canada and nine other “sending” countries, and given to children in more than 100 “receiving” countries.
West Island Mission is a non-profit organization that provides well-balanced, high quality food assistance and other related aid to the less fortunate living in the West Island of Montreal. Statistics: Since 2005, WIM collects food donations and other basic supplies from the community and corporations in order to make a difference in the lives of West Islanders in need regardless of their personal history and background. Since its inception, the demand for food assistance in the West Island has grown exponentially. In 2015, WIM provided more than 1900 food baskets to 260 different families from Pierrefonds, Roxboro, Ste-Geneviève, DDO, Pointe-Claire, Kirkland, Beaconsfield, and Île Bizard. In addition to monthly food assistance, WIM also offers back-to-school support and Christmas baskets.
At WIM, we help West Islanders in need by offering three types of services. Individuals and families in need can apply to receive Monthly Food Assistance. They can receive well-balanced, high quality food from our list of 12 staple items, and other related products. Every week, we add milk and fresh produce to their baskets based on product availability and prices. WIM also offers Back-to-School support for those who need it. Our back-to-school event takes place in August and provides school supplies, food, clothing, shoes, and more. WIM’s biggest event is the Christmas Basket Distribution, which takes place every year in December when we help close to 300 families. Obviously, the holidays are difficult to those in need. We do our best to offer them a joyful holiday by offering a complete food basket with a turkey, toys for the children, and other related items that are generously donated by individuals and corporations located in the West Island.
