CBC Montreal’s Do crew helps Santropol Roulant on July 29!

With vacations and holiday schedules, the summer months can be difficult for groups who rely on volunteers.

Santropol Roulant runs a meals on wheels program in Montreal and right now they’re having a hard time keeping up with afternoon weekday meal deliveries and need our help!

The CBC Montreal Do Crew will head out on foot, bike and bus to deliver meals on Monday July 29 to lend a hand. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer for this event, then here is what you need to know:

Date of Do Crew event is Monday, July 29.

Time to arrive at Santropol Roulant (111 Roy E.) is 2:15 p.m.

We’ll be broken into groups of two and will be given a maximum of 12 meals to deliver.

You should expect to be busy with meal deliveries until 6 p.m.

Meals are delivered to areas of Montreal including Mile End, Centre-Sud, downtown and around the McGill campus.

Meals are delivered by foot, by car and sometimes by bus. This is a somewhat physically demanding event so you need to keep in mind that you'll be on your feet for about three to four hours.

Eight volunteers are needed for this event.

If you’d like to help out and think that this is the right Do Crew fit for you, then please get in touch with Monique Lacombe via email: monique.lacombe@cbc.ca
