Donate Local – Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House
This holiday season, have a tangible impact directly within your community. Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House is asking for your help to support two of our most vulnerable populations: seniors and newcomer families with young children.
Meals for Seniors
There are more older adults now facing food insecurity than ever before, and fewer resources to support them.
We are appealing to you to help us provide meals to seniors who live right here in our neighbourhood. Your donation will provide accessible meals and opportunities to uplift and connect seniors in our neighbourhood. You can best support this program by setting up a monthly donation which will allow us to plan ahead and ensure we can continue to nourish and connect our neighbours in need.
Food. Connection. Nourishment. Love.
“Thank you to the wonderful people people at the Neighbourhood House that provide a terrific place to bring my mom.”
“Thats the only place where someone greets me and checks on me , not like a restaurant where no one knows you.”
Family Literacy Outreach (FLO)
Imagine being a young mom who is new to Canada, new to the language, the culture, and the systems. Imagine learning to read English while raising a family, looking for work, and adjusting to a new place.
Family Literacy Outreach (FLO) matches trained, compassionate volunteers to work one-to-one with a newcomer family, so they can improve English literacy. Learning to read and comprehend English is essential for the caregiver to secure a job, navigate social services, and build relationships with others in this city.
