Miracle Montreal wants to bring all Montrealers together to help feed the growing number of people facing food insecurity with the MARCH 13TH MIRACLE food drive!
On March 13, at 10:00 am, they are inviting every single resident on the island of Montreal and surrounding areas to drop a non-perishable food item on their doorstep.
