Food distributions meet at the Jardin Albert Schweitzer on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9h30 and on Saturdays at 10h. Come and join us!

Sidewalk Stories


Partager: He expressed his gratitude for more simple things — « for people like you, who come and ask me what I dreamed of doing when I was young. » 

Learning Language, Learning Lives: My daughter would run into my room in the mornings and jump onto the bed, jump on me, beat me up, saying, Give me pancakes! Give me pancakes! So I’d make her pancakes, Mickey Mouse shaped, with fruit faces. Strawberry eyes and pineapple for the mouth. » His hands traced out the shape of the batter, of the memories.
Big Serve Days, Even Bigger Hearts
On S.E.R.V.E. Saturdays, volunteers go above and beyond in a variety of activities: bike brigade distributions, Sweep the City, the refugee language exchange, picnic, and a twice-monthly soup kitchen!

"The seemingly-insignificant, compassionate acts
done by people like you and me
make a groundswell of small, unseen miracles."

Read an article here by STCP leader Peter DeWit!

 
The canes which this gentleman uses to walk were broken, making it hard for him to get around on the streets. We thought we would surprise him with
a new pair! His smile was well worth it.
Statistics: Did you know?
Refugees flee their homes, pushed and pulled by nightmare situations
they never wanted to be in. Consider the desperation,
when the boat is less dangerous than staying on land....
Value of the Month: BELIEF
             
Sometimes it's hard to remember what led us out onto the streets. But we continue to volunteer, persevering, morning by morning, in the belief that kindness is worth something, that small acts accumulate. They will change our society; we will create a better world. 
Thank you for being part of our work!
Let's spread some hap-PEA-ness. :)
