Always eager to help, Terry Pomerantz, the leader of the Pomerantz Foundation, appeals to the solidarity of everyone.
“We are going though a difficult experience. These are the times to show solidarity, courage and mutual support. COVID-19 is taking lives, closing schools and suspending the activities of several companies. We are all worried, and it’s completely natural.”
Terry continues: “Children who were in need yesterday are even more in need today and will be even more in need tomorrow. COVID-19 does not diminish in any way violence against women, on the contrary. It does not feed or shelter the homeless, on the contrary. It does not improve the lives of sick children, on the contrary.”
“If you are not at-risk and are available, offer your help to organizations like Sun Youth, the emergency services of which remain open to the public. Moisson Montréal is also in urgent need of volunteers to ensure the distribution of food to 250 aid organizations. The West Island Women’s Centre, Le Chaînon and several community groups also need your help!”
“All of these organizations strictly adhere to government public health guidelines on hygiene and social distancing. Let’s unite with the health angels and become social angels to contribute to the well-being of children, women and families who are living much more difficult lives than we are in these times. All of these people are incredibly resilient. They deserve our support. So, together, let’s take action to defeat COVID-19!”
