- Right now, there are many local Montreal businesses and individuals that are doing their part to help out doctors and nurses around the city.
- And we believe their generous deeds shouldn't go unnoticed!
- See our list of local heroes below.
Some people choose to bring light into dark situations. In our city, there's currently a ton of companies stepping up and giving back their communities. So many local Montreal businesses and individuals are doing what they can to help out frontline workers right now — especially those in the medical field.
Certain locals have taken their workout talents and shared live training sessions on Instagram, other at-home cooks are giving recipes and cooking classes online, and while others have used their time to provide donations to health care workers.
One business that is truly stepping up is @SundaeCreativeAgency, which is run by Kristina Argento and Karine Idrissi.
Their agency believes in "building leading-edge integrated communication strategies to elevate brands to their highest potential."
Together, along with their clients and team, they have brought donations, including food, masks, and gloves, to various hospitals throughout the city.
Among others, we've found restaurants offering meals to doctors and nurses who work long hours trying to keep Montrealers safe.
It's because of people and companies like the following that truly make me more proud to be from an amazing city like Montreal.
Not all heroes wear capes, some do donations!
Comptoir400 & Sharon Brand
Sharon Brand has been working with Comptoir400 for the past three to four weeks to offer pizza deliveries to doctors and nurses working directly with COVID-19 patients in the city.
Deliveries thus far have gone to frontline workers at the Montreal General Hospital, the Jewish General Hospital, the CHUM, and the Ste-Justine Hospital.
Comptoir400 has also partnered up with Bassé Nuts, Carrement Tarte, Café Brossard, and Bilboquet & Media Graph to offer medical workers a variety of food options with their deliveries.
If ever you'd like to team up with Comptoir400, you can contact Sharon through her Instagram: @sharonbrand.
The owners of Fiorellino Snack Bar have taken it upon themselves to help feed hospital workers who are currently working endless hours to help keep our community safe.
They have already donated over 700 meals to different hospitals around the city.
Ristorante Portovino Dix30
This eatery safely prepared 250 homemade, individual meals. The restaurant donated these meals to Ste-Justine hospital and the results were both delicious and so appreciated.
Trattoria Susanna had dispatched and provided 50 fresh meals to doctors and nurses around the city.
One of my go-to spots for manicures and pedicures, The Ten Spot has offered 200 gift cards for free treatments at any of their three Montreal locations for health care workers to use —once they reopen!
DAVIDsTEA is blessed to call Montreal home.
The company donated a variety of tea in various flavours for 200 gift bags that have been distributed to health care workers in Montreal.
Coffee is essential for health care workers who are working long hours and tiring shifts.
Aroma Caffee offered coffee machines with a ton of coffee, cups, sugar and milk for the staff lounge, which I'm certain has been going to great use.
Health from Transylvania, a Montreal based company, generously donated 200 fruit jams and herbal teas to hospitals across our city.
The jewelry brand's founder, Alex Prijic-Smith, will be giving back $10 per Hamsa necklace sold to the Ste-Justine Hospital.
It's great to see how many companies are giving back throughout this trying time.
I can definitely say that I'm grateful to be surrounded by so much love and generosity, even in the midst of social distancing, which makes me so proud to be from Montreal.
