The Montreal Police Brotherhood Helping the Community


On Monday, November 15, the JAC Foundation welcomed representatives of the SPVM Station 1 on their annual round of giving to worthy causes. They presented the Foundation with a cheque of $720 for the College food bank called “The Pantry,” to provide food for students struggling financially.

For 53 years now, the Montreal Police Brotherhood has organized the Journée fèves au lard (Beans Day) and fed thousands of people in need. They have raised and distributed $millions to the community. Like in so many cases, the pandemic has made tough situations even more difficult.  Fortunately donations to the Brotherhood stayed quite steady allowing them to continue giving back to a very appreciative community.

La Fraternité des policiers et policières de Montréal au service de la communauté

Le lundi 15 novembre, la Fondation du Cégep John Abbott a accueilli des représentants de la station 1 du SPVM dans le cadre de leur tournée annuelle de dons. Ils ont remis à la Fondation un chèque de 720 $ destiné à la banque alimentaire du Collège, appelée ” The Pantry “, afin de fournir des denrées pour les étudiants en difficulté financière.

Depuis 53 ans, la Fraternité des policiers et policières de Montréal organise la Journée fèves au lard et nourrit des milliers de personnes dans le besoin. Elle a recueilli et distribué des millions de dollars à la communauté. Comme dans beaucoup de cas, la pandémie a rendu les situations difficiles encore plus difficiles.  Heureusement, les dons à la Fraternité sont restés stables, ce qui leur permet de continuer à donner à une communauté très reconnaissante.
