Elliot is a resident of District 2 (so is his son) and well known community activist.

Campaign 2014 will be launched on October 2 in downtown Montreal with Centraide’s March of 1,000 Umbrellas. This annual fundraising campaign will make it possible to improve living conditions for families in difficulty (food, housing, budget planning), promote the development of young children, prevent delinquency and encourage academic perseverance among youth, facilitate the integration of newcomers, and break the isolation of seniors and people with disabilities or mental health problems.
Donations to Centraide provide essential funding to over 360 community agencies on the Island of Montreal, in Laval and on the South Shore that offer services and support to alleviate the effects of poverty and exclusion, and to improve living conditions for the most vulnerable.
