The Mis­sisquoi North Vol­un­teer Cen­tre (CABMN) Partage/share Food Bank in Pot­ton is pre­par­ing for its An­nual Christ­mas Bas­ket dis­tri­bu­tion to those in need in Pot­ton and Bolton East ar­eas during the hol­i­days.

The man­date of the Partage/share Com­mit­tee is to help pro­vide es­sen­tial food and house­hold con­sum­ables where need ex­ists in the com­mu­nity. Meet­ings of the Partage/share Com­mit­tee are con­ducted with com­pas­sion, with all mem­bers of the com­mit­tee re­spect­ing the pri­vacy and con­fi­den­tial­ity of clients.

The com­mit­tee cur­rently con­sists of five mem­bers: Claire Al­ger, June Pea­cock, Charles Lau­rin, Roger Gagné and Chris­tian Don­ald­son. Jen­nifer Mcgeean, em­ployee of the CAB of­fers sup­port when needed to the com­mit­tee.

Ac­cord­ing to its An­nual Re­port, the Com­mit­tee re­sponded to 37 re­quests for Food Bank during the year 2016 to 2017 and last year pro­vided Christ­mas bas­kets to 32 fam­i­lies with the help of 17 (elves) vol­un­teers and 8 vol­un­teer driv­ers.

Partage/share is proud to be part of the CAB Vol­un­teer Cen­tre fam­ily. While the CAB of­fers many di­verse pro­grams for se­niors, youth, in­tel­lec­tu­ally im­paired and those in need, the Partage/share is es­pe­cially vi­tal during the hol­i­day sea­son although it is ac­tive all year long.

« The hol­i­day sea­son is again fast ap­proach­ing, » ex­plained P/S com­mit­tee mem­ber, June Pea­cock. « At this time of the year, the com­mit­tee en­cour­ages you to re­mem­ber those in need.”

We en­cour­age mone­tary gifts (mailed or de­liv­ered) and non-per­ish­able foods; both greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Please drop non-per­ish­able foods in one of the con­tain­ers lo­cated in the area or bring them to the Mis­sisquoi North Vol­un­teer Cen­tre at 314-B rue Prin­ci­pale, Man­sonville (Québec) J0E 1X0.

To regis­ter for a bas­ket, please re­spect the fol­low­ing: To re­ceive a bas­ket you must come to the Vol­un­teer Cen­tre and fill out a form be­tween: NOVEM­BER 1, 2017 TO DE­CEM­BER 1, 2017. Please be re­minded that all re­quests are of course, treated con­fi­den­tially.

CABMN Pres­i­dent and Chair­per­son of the Partage/share com­mit­tee, Charles Lau­rin, is quick to em­pha­size the vol­un­teer con­tri­bu­tion of so many who make the Food Bank a suc­cess in the Pot­ton and East Bolton ar­eas.

“To the many vol­un­teers and to those who so gen­er­ously do­nate to the Partage/share pro­gram through­out the year, Partage/share and the CABMN thank you for your time, sup­port and con­tri­bu­tion to its long­stand­ing pro­gram.”
