Who are we ?

D├ępannage Saint-Agapit was a parish organization that existed for several decades. We incorporated in 1995 and since 1999 we have a company number and we hold a receipt number for income tax purposes.

Our organization serves the City of Deux-Montagnes. Its mission is to help families and individuals in need. This support is mainly Christmas baskets form and we allocate food vouchers throughout the year.

We are committed to meet all the demands placed upon us and that meet the following criteria:

  • Remain within the City of Deux-Montagnes.
  • Who really need help.
  • Does not receive Christmas basket of other organization.

Proof of residency and income are request from beneficiaries that address their demand for help.
We also ensure that no other organization provides them with food assistance.
These are the only criteria on which we rely to grant or deny a basket.

Our support for individuals and needy families

Many people and groups experiencing significant financial difficulties and rely on the generosity of all to spend the holidays with joy and dignity.
Throughout the year we are present and we help individuals and families when they address their requests.
