Thousands of people contribute every year to Centraide’s campaign. These people come from all backgrounds but have in common the fact that they are concerned about poverty and want to help alleviate its effects.
Centraide’s annual campaign is the greatest show of solidarity with the less fortunate in Greater Montreal. Through this campaign, Centraide aims to reach out, raise awareness and mobilize as many people as possible in support of the outstanding work done by its funded agencies in fighting poverty and social exclusion in their neighbourhoods.
