Help make a child’s wish for Santa come true

The Dawson community is invited once again to make a child’s wish for Santa come true by participating in the Batshaw Youth and Family Centres annual Holiday Gift Campaign. The goal is to provide gifts and needed items for approximately 1,400 children aged 0-17 who are under Youth Protection in the Montreal region, including children in foster care and group homes.

Janice Harvey (retired Faculty, History) is looking for:

  • Individuals or teams/departments to be matched with children and their wish lists for Santa ($ value up to you, suggested $50 per child)
  • Volunteers to help deliver gifts to the Batshaw facility nearby on Weredale Park Street in Westmount.

If you are interested in being matched with a child or helping Janice with delivery:

Janice reminds us that these children are a part of our extended community. Many become Dawson students and students in several Dawson programs do stages in their facilities. This will be the sixth year that the Dawson community has mobilized for this campaign. Last year we provided gifts for about 70 children.
