Sheertex and Bread & Beyond

November 1, 2023

In a heartening display of community engagement and compassion, Sheertex, a pioneering company in the textile industry, joined hands with Bread & Beyond, a nonprofit dedicated to the needs of people experiencing and at risk of homelessnes, to make a tangible difference in the lives of Montreal’s homeless population.

To celebrate Sheertex’s Giving Day, volunteers gathered at their office in Montreal to embark on a mission to provide nourishment and support to those in need. Armed with enthusiasm and determination, they set out to make 500 sandwiches, each one a symbol of hope and solidarity.

The collaboration between Sheertex and Bread & Beyond exemplifies the power of partnerships in creating positive social impact. Sheertex demonstrated its commitment to social responsibility by extending a helping hand under the guidance of volunteers from Bread & Beyond. With precision and care, they assembled sandwiches meat & cheese, ensuring that each one would provide sustenance and comfort to those who would receive them.

Once the sandwiches were prepared, they were ready to be distributed to local homeless shelters across Montreal. The impact of this collaborative effort was immediate and profound, as hundreds of individuals in need received a meal. The significance of this event extends beyond the act of providing food; it serves as a reminder of the power of collective action in addressing social issues. By coming together, Sheertex and Bread & Beyond exemplified how businesses and nonprofits can work hand in hand to create positive change and foster a sense of unity and empathy within their community.

In the end, the collaboration between Sheertex and Bread & Beyond (as facilitated by Keen to Help) served as a shining example of the transformative power of kindness and solidarity.
