“Intergenerational friendships are not a lot different [than other friendships]; they have the same warmth, love and bonding." - A.
2020 DONATION DRIVE
Throughout the month of September, and ending on October 1st(National Senior’s Day), we will be sharing a sample of portraits from YD members & volunteers on social media. While these images are a reflection of the important work we do, we hope too they remind you of the similarities we all share!
As the measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 limit opportunities for social connection, the Yellow Door’s mission is especially relevant. Your donationsare needed nowto ensure that our services reach vulnerable and isolated seniors, and that our organization continues to provide youth with a support network outside of their usual circles.

We acknowledge that The Yellow Door is situated on unceded Indigenous land, as it was taken without treaty or agreement. We recognize the Kanien’keha:ka Nation as the custodians of Tiohtia:ke (Montreal), a traditional meeting place with other Iroquoians and Algonquians, including the Algonquin-Anishinaabe, Atikamekw and the Huron-Wendat. We stand in solidarity and in action in supporting the journey towards reconciliation.
