MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 22, 2017 Ė In preparation for the holidays, the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) will once again be teaming up with the Canadian Armed Forces to support CTV Montreal’s annual “Spirit of Giving” campaign, which brings much needed assistance to the less fortunate throughout Montreal.  

More than 40 schools and centres will take part in the campaign, †as well as some community organizations. Lester B. Pearson High School in Montreal North and LaurenHill Academy in St. Laurent will serve as the depots and main hubs for the campaign.

Many of the participating EMSB schools will organize a series of events set to encourage donations, and a number of schools will be featured on CTV Montreal’s mid-day and nightly news programs throughout the duration of the campaign.†
The campaign will begin with a live broadcast from LaurenHill Academy on Wednesday, December 6 at 12 p.m. and conclude with a live broadcast from Lester B. Pearson High School on Thursday, December 14 at 6 p.m.†

“I wish to thank everyone for their generous contributions and ongoing support to the Spirit of Giving campaign,” said EMSB Chairman Angela Mancini.
