Mail gift cards to : Montreal Basketeers - Panier pour elles P.O. Box 52506 BP Castelnau Montréal, QC, H2R 3C5

The coordinators of the Montreal Basketeers are Olivia Collette and Marla Cable. The Montreal chapter was founded in 2015 by Rachel Auclair. Olivia joined the ranks in early 2019, eventually taking over the chapter while Rachel, who'd moved to the south shore, founded the Montérégie chapter. Having picked up baskets from volunteers while donating 3 herself to the 2019 drop-off, Marla decided to join the Montreal Basketeers. While Marla liaises with women's shelters, Olivia handles communications.

Olivia Collette et Marla Cable sont les coordonnatrices de Paniers pour elles. Le chapitre montréalais de l'organisme a été fondé en 2015 par Rachel Auclair. Olivia s'est jointe à l'équipe en début 2019 pour éventuellement la prendre en main pendant que Rachel, maintenant localisée en Rive-Sud, a fondé Paniers pour elles Montérégie. Marla, quant à elle, a fait partie intégrale de la collecte de 2019, ayant ramassé quelques paniers des bénévoles et créé 3 paniers elle-même. Sa participation l'a donc inspiré de se joindre à l'organisme. Désormais, Marla fait le lien entre Panier pour elles et les refuges pour femmes, tandis qu'Olivia s'occupe des communications.

Welcome to Montréal Basketeers


Hi everyone!

Due to the pandemic, the Montreal Basketeers - Paniers pour elles is changing gears this year. Instead of a basket drive, we're asking you to buy gift cards, put them in an envelope and send them to use. We'll then give them to participating women's shelters. Send your envelope with gift cards to this address:

Montreal Basketeers - Panier pour elles
P.O. Box 52506 BP Castelnau
Montréal, QC, H2R 3C5

And just what kinds of gift cards should you get, you ask? We spoke to representatives at the shelters, and they tell us that the women need housewares, clothing and food. So we suggest gift cards from Walmart, Canadian Tire, Winners, and grocers like Loblaws, Métro or IGA. If you're able to, why not throw in an Ultimate Dining card so the women can treat themselves to a restaurant meal (takeout, of course, due to social distancing).

You'll decide what you can contribute, but we suggest gift cards valued at $50 each, minimum. 

To take part in this year's drive, simply send your envelope filled with gift cards to the address indicated above before November 21, 2020. 

We'll be back soon to show you examples of envelopes...

looking forward to your support.
