On August 23rd, the Friends of the Royal Canadian Air Force Foundation delivered a cheque for $ 20 000 to Bagotville’s military community to go towards supporting military families and deployed soldiers.

The foundation holds several fundraising activities each year in order to reach its monetary objective. The funds provided to CFB Bagotville as part of the base family day will be distributed among different services. The Deployment Support Centre received half of the amount, $ 10 000, to improve the well- being of deployed personnel. The MFRC received $ 6 000 for funding for its new program; the Rescue Nanny program. Finally, the chaplaincy service was awarded $ 4 000 for its Family Assistance Fund.
