Thank You for Going Above and Beyond!

Featured, Fundraising

In the final month of 2022, you, our wonderful community, swooped in with astounding support and made this Santropol Roulant’s most successful campaign yet, surpassing the goal of $90,000 and raising a whopping total of $95,619. This was collected from 284 caring donors. You are what makes food security and moments of connection possible for some of Montreal’s most vulnerable community members.

This past year was a challenge financially for the Roulant with exorbitantly high food prices and inflation affecting not only our own program costs, but also increasing the demand for affordable food from the community. Heading forth into 2023, we are energised by your generosity in answering our call for support in this year’s winter campaign.

Here are some numbers that tell a story about your financial support this winter!

  • Thirty percent of donors increased their contribution this year, helping the Roulant to adapt with the rising needs of the community
  • Five new donors set up monthly donations over the course of the campaign. Monthly donations are crucial to helping plan for the future!
  • Fifty-two of the donors over the course of the campaign were first time donors. Whether these are longstanding or new members of the Roulant, it warms our hearts to see you choose to channel your support into the food security and social inclusion of your community

Did you miss this winter campaign, or perhaps you’re looking for ways to extend your involvement with the Roulant year ‘round? There are many great ways to stay closely linked with the Roulant’s work! You can set up a monthly donation or make a one-time contribution and get a tax receipt any time of year, and our Meals-on-Wheels program is always in need of volunteers. We encourage you to give us a call at (514) 284-9335 if you want to chat more about these opportunities!

Thank you for helping us to tip the scales for positive change. Your generosity facilitates nutritious meals landing at the doors of people in need and enables Santropol Roulant’s work to provide immediate social services while mobilising for larger social change. Thank you for going above and beyond!
