Christmas Food Drive

LCA 2019 Annual Christmas Food Drive (in partnership with Agape)

Help support needy families and individuals in Laval, by donating non-perishable food items, to be distributed by Agape as Christmas Baskets in our local community. Just drop your donations off at the designated area in the Café on any given Sunday – you are sure to be a blessing!

Non-perishables can include breakfast, lunch, supper, snacks, baking, household items and new toys.

Agape is a non-profit community organization serving the English-speaking and multicultural families of Laval.

Nov. 17 to Dec. 8: Drop off your weekly non-perishables for the LCA Christmas basket food drive.

Don’t hesitate to see Isabelle Duguay or Dawn or Renée Robitaille should you have any questions.

Thank you for your generosity this Christmas season!
