FOOD COUNTER IN GORE FOR MILLE-ISLES RESIDENTS
Through a collaborative project between the Municipality of Mille-Isles, the Township of Gore and the Centre d’Entraide d’Argenteuil, it is now possible for Mille-Isles residents to receive food assistance locally, at the Community Center in Gore. This counter makes it possible for Mille-Isles residents to avoid going to Lachute to pick up food.
Distribution takes place every second Thursday between 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. at Trinity hall, 2 Cambria road in Gore. You will need to register at the following number: 450 562-5151 ext. 101.
At the time of the distribution, you must have two valid pieces of identification along with proof of residence and proof of income (T4 or welfare cheque). You will not be eligible if you do not provide the requested ID. Please do not forget to bring reusable grocery bags.

SERVICES FROM COUP DE POUCE SOLIDARITY COOPERATIVE
For the past eight years, the Coup de pouce Argenteuil solidarity cooperative has distinguished itself by its professional services including domestic help and personal assistance. Those services are now offered to residents of Mille-Isles. Whether for a one-time job in the spring, such as window cleaning, or for regular housekeeping, Coup de pouce Argenteuil meets the needs of the population at a cost that suits the income of the person who uses the cooperative. Personal care is also available such as assistance for bath. In many situations, particularly for seniors who wish to stay in their homes as long as possible, it is important to have the help of someone they can trust to prepare meals, run errands or offer a few hours of respite to caregivers of a loved one.
Anyone 18 years of age or older residing in any of the nine municipalities in the RCM is eligible for Coup de pouce Argenteuil services. The fee varies depending on the type of service as well as the age, annual income and marital status of the person. In addition, anyone aged 70 and over is eligible for a tax credit. For a personalized assistance plan, contact Coup de pouce Argenteuil at 450 562-9993.
