6P and the Gift of Giving

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill

As 2019 is coming to a close, 6P Marketing is getting into the holiday spirit. We’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to give back to our community during this special time of year.

While the holiday season can be full of magic and wonder for many, it can be rather difficult for others. 6P wants to help change that, which is why we’re putting on our Santa hats and collecting, packaging, and distributing shoeboxes filled with gifts to those in need through an organization that’s near and dear to our hearts Centre Flavie-Laurent.

We’ve doubled our goal this year to 300 shoeboxes, and we’d love your help in reaching it!

Where are the shoeboxes going?

6P staff will be handing out shoebox gifts at Centre Flavie-Laurent (CFLC), located in the heart of St. Boniface. Since 1979, CFLC has provided comfort and support to the impoverished and the vulnerable by distributing no-cost material goods, such as furniture, household items, and clothing.

How can I

1. Fill a shoebox with gifts and drop it off at 6P Marketing. (We'll take empty shoeboxes too!)

2. Donate some gift items (and we’ll fill the shoebox for you!).

3. Donate money. A $10 donation will fill one shoebox on your behalf.

4. Spread the word about this great cause, and encourage friends and family to participate!
