Again this year, employees from our Rouyn-Noranda centre played a big role in supporting the 20th annual telethon of La Ressource pour personnes handicapées de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue/Nord-du-Québec. This year, a record number of 46 employees, volunteers and guests solicited donations between 12 pm and 6:30 pm. In total, $8,292 was collected. Prizes, snacks, donuts and coffee and a pizza dinner were offered to support our volunteer team throughout the day. A big congratulation to our three champion collectors of the day:
- Leila Aloui: $1,150
- Sylvie Pharand: $950
- Bachir Lanez: $550
All in all, La Ressource raised over $503,158 to support its work. Many celebrities participated in the event and some even dropped by to encourage the Nordia volunteers.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success!
