Défi Cen­traide Estrie – a grow­ing tra­di­tion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

For the sec­ond year in a row, em­ploy­ees of the Fon­da­tion J. Ar­mand Bom­bardier have taken part in the Cen­traide Estrie cor­po­rate cam­paign, this time rais­ing $2,755.20. For two weeks, the em­ploy­ees of the Foun­da­tion showed their orig­i­nal­ity and cre­ativ­ity by or­gan­is­ing sev­eral fund-rais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to raise the money.

The Fon­da­tion J. Ar­mand Bom­bardier, cre­ated in 1965, has as its mis­sion to per­pet­u­ate the hu­man­i­tar­ian work of Joseph-Ar­mand Bom­bardier and to con­trib­ute to the re­al­iza­tion of the so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity of Bom­bardier, the com­pany that he founded in 1942. The Foun­da­tion is in­volved in the fields of ed­u­ca­tion, com­mu­nity sup­port, and health as well as arts and cul­ture. It also plays an im­por­tant cul­tural role through the Musée J. Ar­mand Bom­bardier and the Cen­tre cul­turel Yvonne L. Bom­bardier, sit­u­ated in Val­court.
