Pharmascience Morris Goodman Community Partnerships Day Celebrated in Collaboration with Volunteer West Island

Another successful Community Partnership Day for Pharmascience volunteers – their 9th!   This annual event has been organized, since its inception in 2011 in honour of the birthday of company’s founder, Morris Goodman, in collaboration with Volunteer West Island’s Corporate Volunteer Recruitment Program.

The 2019 Morris Goodman Partnership Community Partnership Day was again coordinated at the company level by Public Affairs & Communications Coordinator Romy Jedwab, Corporate Events Manager Laila Romeo, and the Public Affairs & Communications Department team. 

Over 250 employee-volunteers went out into the community, offering their assistance and enthusiasm to a wide variety of local non-profit organizations in the West Island, Montreal, and surrounding areas where they were once again warmly welcomed.


Let’s do lunch – Volunteers needed for Meals on Wheels!

 Meals on Wheels, a volunteer-driven program, supplies hot, nutritious meals to home-bound or isolated seniors, and to those with reduced autonomy.

More volunteers are needed to continue to offer our growing list of clients this essential service; many rely on the program in order to remain in their own homes. 

We need help one morning a month, on Tuesday or Thursday, in the Pierrefonds and Dollard-Des-Ormeaux kitchens.  Individuals and rotating corporate teams welcome.  No experience necessary.      

  • Teams of cooks – prepare meals at MOW Kitchen in St. Barnabas Church, or at the DDO Civic Centre from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM.
  • Drivers/deliverers – from 10:30 AM to noon in Pierrefonds

 

Please contact Volunteer West Island (514) 457-5445 #226 for information or to volunteer.
