HOW TO GET INVOLVED

There are many ways that you can contribute to our mission

How to get involved

CASA aims at helping in the integration of Syrian Refugees to the Greater Montreal Area, but we cannot achieve that alone. We warmly thank everyone for their generous offers.

DONATIONS

Here are ways that you can contribute to our mission

General donations

General donations can be made here. Donations will be used to offer grocery coupons to refugees and to buy welcome packages for children.


Volunteer your time

If you would like to volunteer your time, please provide information on your skills and interest by filling in the form on the home page.


Furniture to donate

If you have furniture to donate, we will add your item to our list of donations. Please note that we do not have storage space for bigger items and therefore kindly request that you keep your items until we are made aware of a family who would need them.

Sponsor refugees privately

If you would like to sponsor refugees privately, you can find general information on the following governmental page. You can also be asked to be paired with a refugee that needs sponsorship to be brought to Canada by writing to this address: inforparrainage@tcri.qc.ca


No International Adoption

We have been contacted by people interested in adopting Syrian refugee orphans. While we recognize the level of generosity of such an offer, please be informed that no international adoption is permitted in Quebec in a time of a humanitarian crisis. Moreover, many countries in the Middle-East including Syria do not allow for adoption. It is therefore not possible to adopt a Syrian child. For the well-being and the best interest of the child, please be cautious if such an offer is presented to you.


Material Donation

Material donations can be made at the locations detailed in the grid below (for more locations please call CASA’s hotline).While we still accept clothes, the generous donations already received will cover the need for the refugees arriving shortly. We rather suggest that donations focus on the following items:

- Clothes: The need is fulfilled except for socks (for adults and kids) and underwear. These items must be new and unused.

- Food products (nonperishable): Flour, rice, pasta, oil, sugar, tea, canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned fish, dried legumes (chickpeas, lentils, split peas), dried fruits, spices and condiments, mayonnaise, snacks for children to bring to school, beverages, tahini, crackers, cookies, chocolate… please check the expiry date and do not donate opened packages.

- Toiletries (unopened packs): Tissue paper, unscented sanitary napkins, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, moisturizing body lotion, deodorant, combs, razors…

- For babies and toddlers: diapers and wipes, diaper cream, soap, shampoo, moisturizing lotion,

- School supplies: Stationery, pens, scissors, lunch boxes, school bags, used computers.

About Us

The Canadian Alliance for Syrian Aid (CASA) was created in the wake of the announcement that 25 000 Syrian refugees would be welcomed to Canada by the end of the month of February 2016.
