Twenty West is running it’s Second Annual Homeless Drive in collaboration with Mission Old Brewery. We are collecting various warm items such as blankets, new underwear and socks to help support individuals endure our cold winter weather to come. Our goal is to gather warm items at our location and drop them off downtown throughout the drive. Last year we had the chance to spread the news with your paper and had such a success with your help!
Last year during our first annual drive, we were able to collect 4 pairs of boots, 8 dog accessories, 9 bras, 16 pairs of gloves, 17 coats, 21 pants, 36 sweaters, 39 scarves, 46 hats, 51 shirts, 165 pairs of underwear (95% new), 240 Blankets (70% new), 823 pairs of socks ( 90% new), toiletries and more! We would love to surpass these numbers and collect even more items this year!
We believe that we can come together with our community to help other Montrealer’s in need.
The drive will last for a period of two weeks between December 02, 2019 and December 13, 2019.
But we will also be opened on Saturday December 07, 2019 from 9am- 12pm for a special weekend drop off (for those who cannot make it during the week), where we will be offering hot cocoa, coffee and goodies to whoever wants to pass by, donate or support the cause!
The drop off location:
451 Beaconsfield BLVD, Suite 205
Beaconsfield, Qc. H9W 4C2
(Monday- Friday 9am-5pm)
We are the only drop off location currently in the West Island and we are reaching out to as many businesses, schools, radio stations, news platform we can. I hope we can work together to get the word out so we can collect as much as possible!
If you have any questions regarding the drive, please do not hesitate to contact me.
- Starting Monday, December 2nd, 2019, repeated every week on Sunday until Saturday, December 14, 2019 — all day
