The Montreal Blakely Jr. Foundation believes that all children should be “LOVED AND PRAISED”, this instills confidence and motivation. All children/youths should be given the proper tools to reach their individual GOALS AND DREAMS IN LIFE! REACH FOR THE STARS BY FOLLOWING YOUR RAINBOW!!.
The Foundation holds a Toy Drive each year to provide assistance to underprivileged children/families. We collect toys, books, socks, hats, and electronics for school age children. We gift wrap and distribute everything received prior to December 25th.
The Foundation also believes that no child should be sidelined because of their circumstances. Academic and Extracurricular activities are expensive and become an unattainable dream for children in need due to the already stretched budgets of their families.
With Educational and Athletic funding being cut for youth sports and physical education being taken out of schools, the Montreal Blakely Jr. Foundation is a bridge to parents with the financial costs that can prevent a child from going to college and/or playing the sport he or she loves.
