Over 150 jars of Pointe-Claire honey donated to West Island Mission

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council donated over 150 jars of honey made by the bees from Pointe-Claire’s hives, located on the roof of the Central Library, to West Island Mission.

“We care about our citizens’ well-being, and this donation is meant to help families in need and bring them joy, especially in this time of pandemic,” Mayor Belvedere said.

West Island Mission is a non-profit organization that provides well-balanced, high-quality food assistance and other related aid to the less fortunate living in the West Island of Montréal.

The honey comes from the hives kept on the roof of the Central Library. At the Viburnum entrance of Terra-Cotta Natural Park, there is an educational bee garden filled with nectar- and pollen-producing plants where bees and other pollinators can forage.
