M2S Christmas Parcel Drive 2017:
Ninety percent of all we own comes to us via the sea. Seafarers who spend Christmas on the job and away from their families deeply appreciate receiving a Christmas Parcel when they arrive in the Port of Montreal. We invite you to thank a seafarer by packing a standard sized shoebox suitable for a male. Include new items only such as scarves, toques, gloves, socks, toothbrush & toothpaste, calendar, packaged candy, aftershave lotion, facecloth, playing cards, soap, nail clipper, picture frame (no glass), a small souvenir of Canada, etc. Enclose a Christmas card with a personal note of encouragement/thanks and optionally, your name and address. To find out how to ship your parcels to us by November, visit www.ministrytoseafarers.org/parcels.htm. May you experience the joy of giving!
