Mom Stephanie Koury and community activist and founder of West Island Blog, Rhonda Massad, have joined forces to create the Neighbours for Neighbours food drive in the fight against hidden local hunger.
This journey began when Stephanie Koury wanted to teach her 3-year-old son about giving to people less fortunate in their community and mentioned it to her friend Rhonda Massad who is actively involved in our community. Rhonda’s drive came from learning about the thousands of families in need through her work as a journalist. The initiative has now snowballed into an event shared countless times on Facebook under the event page Neighbours for Neighbours Food Drive and has gathered support from local businesses and sponsored by Desjardins, McDonalds, and West Island Blog. The food collected will benefit the over 2000 West Island people who visit food banks each month.
