Since January 2015, Sutton’s large family has been helping homeless young people aged 12 to 21. For each transaction made with a Sutton broker, a donation is made to Dans la rue.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, charities need our support more than ever. If, like us, you want to do more for these young people, here are two ways to contribute to this cause.

Contribute to our holiday basket

Drop off items in the donation box at the Sutton agency at 6401 Jean-Talon East, or give your broker from Martin Dumont’s real estate team any of the following new items, which are most desperately needed by youth in difficulty.

The street doesn't come with a manual. Thanks to the legacy Pops left us, homeless and at-risk youth have a safe place where they take a break from life on the streets and find assistance, guidance, care and compassion. The challenge before us right now is unprecedented. Every donation makes a world of difference to them.

The spirit of Sutton

The spirit of the Sutton Group is reflected in our values and our commitment to contributing to a better world. Through their daily actions, Sutton’s large family of brokers seek to improve the lives of others. That’s why, for each of our transactions, we make a donation to Dans la rue.
