September 15 – Opportunities for Change
Since 1927, Tyndale St-Georges Community Centre has offered educational programs and services to the community of Little Burgundy in Montreal. Amidst poverty and social marginalization, Tyndale St-Georges is a place where grace is at work – bringing opportunities and new growth. It promotes early literacy, school readiness, academic and social development for children and youth, as well as pre-employment training for adults. Last year nearly 300 volunteers gathered to rebuild the Jesse Maxwell Smith Park in front of the centre. Already, the once seldom-used playground is full of families. Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing are helping to bring hope and change in the Little Burgundy community.
