These Local Montreal Heroes Are Making A Difference In Our City
There is still good in the world!
- While we're all struggling a little to get by in this trying time, there are some people who are using this as an opportunity to step up and spread some light in the city.
- These l are doing what they can to help out in the community.
- Food or other supplies for frontline workers, cakes for the elderly in senior's homes and more... this stuff will make your heart feel good.
The unforeseen circumstances that the world is currently in have been leaving people with a great sense of uncertainty. During this time in our lives, many people throughout our city have taken this as an opportunity to spread joy and generosity throughout our city. These have been doing what they can to give back to our community in any way shape or form.
All those working in healthcare in this time of need are heroes on their own, however, other locals who are stepping it up and doing their part have also shown an immense amount of heroism during these trying times.
Montreal-based companies, restaurants and individuals have managed to do whatever they can to make a difference in our community and here at MTLBlog are grateful for their positive efforts, messages of hope and generosity.
We all have the potential to help out during this period, however, it takes truly special individuals to step up and put their thoughts into action.
We at MTLBlog are grateful for not only those who are going above and beyond to help out but also to anyone who is staying home and following the guidelines provided to us by the government.
Which is why we wanted to take this time to thank all the doctors and nurses who are risking their health every day in an attempt to flatten the curve. Now, more than ever, we are proud to be part of a city as incredible as Montreal.
Ardene has been donating sneakers and socks to hospitals across Canada for healthcare workers who are risking their lives to flatten the curve.
