Donate to Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre
For nearly 100 years, Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre has been serving families in Little Burgundy
Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre has been selected as CBC Montreal's charity this holiday season.
Throughout December, CBC will collaborate with Tyndale St-Georges to showcase stories of people in our community who are making a difference.
About Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre
Since 1927, Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre has provided empowering educational programming for residents of Little Burgundy from birth through adulthood. Programs range from early literacy programs to life skills training for adults. Their aim is to ensure that each member of the community has the opportunity and skills needed to realize their potential.
"Being selected as one of CBC's charities is an absolute privilege and honour", says Shauna Joyce, the centre's executive director. "It has been a challenging year for many people and we want the Little Burgundy community to know that, more than ever, we are here".
How you can help
Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre is currently running a 125K Matching Gift Campaign to help recoup the lost revenue from fundraising events canceled because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The campaign runs until December 31, 2020. Anyone who donates during the month of December automatically gets entered into a draw to win a pair of CBC Socks.
In addition to monetary donations, these are the kinds of other items Tyndale St-Georges would love to receive:
- New children's books for their Children's Library – Tyndale St-Georges Children's Library.
- New winter clothing for children 0 to adolescence. These would be given to participants in their programs in need of winter clothes as well as children of the adult participants at Tyndale's Adult Centre.
- School supplies to use at the centre and also to give out to young participants of the centre's programs.
- Pre-prepared food baskets that the centre could give out to their adult and senior participants as gifts.
