The Community Council has begun the new year with great joy and satisfaction, and we would like to share this with you! The time has come to release the results of our December Together, a project whose immense success was largely due to your support. We believe that the objectives identified for this project -- notably to break isolation and foster a sense of community and solidarity -- have all been achieved, as demonstrated in the infograph figures below. Our community was together in December, and we look forward to continuing to be together in the years to come.
Behind the numbers that appear on the project's infograph are families who brought hot meals to their isolated neighbours, volunteers who walked the streets of NDG to meet us with hot chocolate, virtual activities full of conviviality that brought people together, and local restaurants that turned on their ovens in solidarity with the people of NDG.
The month of December taught us a clear lesson: no matter how gloomy the situation is, getting through it together is the way to move forward. Although hot Christmas meals were the main theme of the project, the recipe for success is truly based on innovative ideas, collaboration of partners, community involvement, and adequate funding. On this note, the Community Council would like to thank everyone who contributed to this success including Biz NDG, Desjardins, Mme Kathleen Weil, Roasters Foundation, Provigo Mehdi Tallah, Benny Cultural Center, Jabberwocky, Yayo and his editors, Local 75, Boustan, Grand Burger, Ye Old Orchard, Bofinger, Café Oxford, Mate Latte, Griffon d’or, Restaurant de Chou, Second Cup, Le Dépôt, New Hope Center, NDG Art Hive and many many generous residents.
Good news continues to come from all corners of our four sectors, so be on the lookout.
