Homeless Christmas Socks - Bas de Noël Sans-Abri

Merci pour les Sans-Abri - Thank you for the Homeless

Bring your socks November 19-20, 26-27th - Apportez vos bas les 19-20, 26-27 novembre

      Hello everyone,                                                             
Salut à tous,

   For the fourth year, St. Luke’s Social Justice Youth Committee is planning on sharing the Joy of Christmas by preparing our Christmas Socks filled with much needed and appreciated items such as a warm hat, gloves and a scarf along with other necessities for those that are facing a cold winter without a home.


   We will be delivering the packages to “Spectre de Rue”; they are an organization here in Montreal that offers help to those with problems of addiction, homelessness as well as mental health.

   For those receiving the socks, this will possibly be the only gift they get. It brings them a lot of joy and they are grateful for the care and effort that went into preparing their special gift.

   We encourage all of our Parishioners to participate as a family in our mission; maybe mom and dad could purchase the socks, hat and gloves and the other family members could contribute with shampoo or soap etc...

We will be collecting the socks Nov. 19-20th and 26-27th.

  
Voilà donc la 4e année que le Comité des Jeunes de St Luc pour la Justice Sociale veut partager la joie de Noël en préparant des Bas de Noël remplis d'items dont on a tant besoin pour rester au chaud: un chapeau , des gants, et un foulard et tout le reste dont un sans-abri a besoin pour passer l'hiver.

   Nous allons livrer nos paquets à "Spectre de Rue", un organisme ici à Montréal qui offre de l'aide aux gens qui ont des problèmes de dépendance, de santé mentale, ou qui sont sans-abri. Pour ceux qui recevront ces bas, ce sera peut-être leur seul cadeau. Celui-ci leur apporte beaucoup de joie et ils sont reconnaissants pour leur cadeau spécial pour le soin et de l'effort avec lesquels il a été préparé.

   Nous encourageons tous nos paroissien(ne)s de participer en famille à notre mission: peut-être le papa et la maman pourront acheter les bas, les chapeaux, et les gants, et les autres membres de la famille pourront obtenir les autres items.
   Top of the page
Nous ramasserons les bas complétés les 19-20 et 26-27 novembre.

Adjust the items to suit either a man or a woman.

Ajuster les items pour convenir soit à une femme, soit à un homme.

The Idea - It's satisfying to get together to explore possible actions for promoting social justice - but it goes beyond us to benefit others through specific action - let's start with Christmas Socks full of practical items for some of our homeless brothers and sisters.

L'idée - Nous sommes contents de nous être réunis pour explorer les possibilités d'action pour promouvoir la justice sociale - mais nous rejoignons les autres par des actions spécifiques - commençons avec des Bas de Noël pour des frères et soeurs sans abri.
