MNAs Derraji, Kelley and Garceau award $25,000 to West Island food banks

West Island MNAs Monsef Derraji (MNA for Nelligan), Gregory Kelley (MNA for Jacques-Cartier) and Brigitte B. Garceau (MNA for Robert-Baldwin) are proud to unite their efforts to support three local food banks – On Rock Community Services, West Island Mission and West Island Assistance Fund.

This community initiative coincides with the holiday season and with an economic situation that has become increasingly difficult. The face of poverty has changed – now it is characterized by small families, single mothers, children, workers, students and seniors. There are currently 600,000 Quebecers who are monthly users of food banks.

The three MNAs are providing a total of $25,000 in funding in order to allow the food banks to offer much-needed assistance and support to our most vulnerable citizens. Over and above this support, the MNAs are taking advantage of the opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of these three organizations and to thank their members and their volunteers for all they do.
