This winter, MWIL is helping collect food and toy donations for the Centre des Femmes des Montreal’s 42nd annual holiday campaign. Holidays are particularly difficult for women who struggle with poverty and isolation, so each year Centre des Femmes de Montreal makes and distributes about 750 food and gift baskets so that these women and their families can more easily enjoy the holiday season.
Centre des Femmes de Montreal is a local organization created by women for women. The centre focuses on helping women achieve self-sufficiency through personal and job support programs as well as group activities. They work with an array of clients including unemployed women, newcomers, pregnant women and mothers, and Indigenous women.
