Each new year brings additional challenges and, without a doubt, our hands-on approach allowed us to quickly direct our limited resources where they are most needed.  The success we achieve stems from our fundamental dedication, responsiveness and our flexibility in continuously adapting to changing needs of our clientele and our ability to obtain resources to meet the demand on our services on a timely basis.

Montreal families have one of the lowest per capita incomes in Canada.  As a result, many families are struggling with the additional burden as single parents and experience various crisis situations;  illness, loss of jobs, stress, debt or rents that could be as much as forty percent of family income.  It is clear why the children are often not ready to learn and find ways to hide their dilemma!  Children are using our services at school, because for many of them there is little in the pantry at home.

Unlike many of the other organizations offering food to school children, we do not charge parents for the food we provide to their children.

Your personal support is vital since we are not receiving help from the government.  We have two major campaigns, one in November and one in May in addition to a number of fund-raising functions.  I personally wish to see your support for one or both of these campaigns.  Please support us so that we may continue to provide our services crucial to a child’s wellbeing.

Overall, we ended the year energized, focused and with a strong sense of motivation.  Generations Foundation is confident that we can provide important services to our clientele even in the current difficult economic environment.

I thank you, our generous and committed donors, volunteers and board members for your dedication and support.  With your involvement, we can continue to help thousands of children to face daily challenges against all odds.

Sincerely,

Adrian Bercovici
Executive Director
