We're proud to contribute to Operation Red Nose again this year. Our goal: $50,000.
100% of the donations to the ride-home service go right back to the community where they were received. All of the 61 centres are operated by not-for-profit organizations, and the money raised during the campaign finances their activities throughout the year.
This money goes directly to youth and sports projects supported by these 61 organizations that are active in our communities. Here are 5 specific examples.
The Club optimiste St-Eugène de Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu organized a neighbourhood youth party. Soap box cars, hotdogs, inflatable games, animation and booths were enjoyed by all.
The financial contribution was used to reimburse travel expenses for sick kids' medical treatments. It's one less worry for families who already have so many other concerns to deal with.
The Maison des Jeunes de Saint-Hyacinthe bought goalkeeper gloves along with many good-quality balls for its weekly indoor soccer that takes place during the school year. The organization also showcased participants' talents at a special end-of-season event with soccer skills challenges.
For the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec - région Outaouais, some of the money went to covering the registration of athletes that represented them at various provincial championships. A great way to support sports and encourage competitive spirit.
Ma Fondation Sports et Jeunesse Lanaudière-Sud provided healthy snacks to more than 1,500 baseball players from the region and throughout Quebec after major local tournaments. A great way to actively promote healthy eating among young athletes.
