We want to extend our warmest thanks to Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec for their great generosity towards adolescents and young adults at the Portage residential centre in Saint-Malachie. We also want to extend our gratitude to Mr. Réjean Léger from Canadian Tire in Saint-Romuald for his outstanding collaboration, and to Mrs. Nancy Prévost, the deputy director, for her exceptional responsiveness to our request.
The support from the Fondation Bon départ de Canadian Tire du Québec made it possible for us to renew our sports equipment, ensuring that more young people can use it in a safe and sanitary manner. This donation also greatly facilitated the organization of the Portage Games held in August, which welcomed several adolescents from our various programs in Ontario, the Atlantic, and Quebec.
Through its philanthropic gesture, the Foundation encourages residents to develop healthy lifestyle habits through physical exercise and outdoor activities, thereby becoming a generous benefactor in supporting our youth as they strive to achieve their full potential.
