MISSION CAPSULES: Since 1927, Tyndale St.-Georges Community Centre has offered educational programs and services to the community of Little Burgundy in Montreal. While full of potential, this community struggles with poverty, and social marginalization. Amidst these challenges, Tyndale St. Georges is a place where grace is at work, 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. This was an amazing experience for all the volunteers and will have a lasting impact on the commnity. Already, the once seldom-used playground is full of families. Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... are helping to bring hope and change in the Little Burgundy community.
