Tikun Olam Volunteers participate in the following initiatives:
Le Café was launched by Federation CJA, in partnership with Agence Ometz, the Cummings Jewish Centre for Seniors, and the Communauté Sépharade Unifiée du Québec in March 2009 to offer much needed relief to those who are most in need.
Le Café provides hot, nutritious kosher meals in a comfortable and welcoming environment. It operates out of the cafeteria at the Cummings Centre for Seniors’ and serves over 550 meals a week, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The meals are prepared and served by volunteers.
Meals on Wheels
A daily kosher Meals on Wheels service is coordinated by the Cummings Jewish Centre for Seniors, but supplied through the Jewish General Hospital, among other Jewish organizations. This program is designed for people who need to have a fresh meal provided as frequently as five times per week. The purpose is to allow people who are still capable of living at home, but not to prepare food for themselves, to maintain their independence for as long as possible.
Shabbat in a Box
Shabbat in a Box contains everything needed to bring the spirit of Shabbat into the home. Once a month, deliveries are made to a cross section of women within our community. We are looking for women who are interested in being part of this committee.
The Giving Basket
Let your table reflect the spirit of your Simcha. TOV can prepare centerpieces for any occasion to be donated to a cause that is close to your heart and funded by Federation CJA. Choose from nonperishable food items, school supplies for children…the possibilities are endless.
Volunteers are asked to knit lap blankets that will be donated to seniors’ residences across the city. You can knit individually, in groups, with your sisters, friends, mothers… Lap blankets can be dropped off at Federation CJA.
