CLD launches fundraiser

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The tourism branch of the Mem­phrem­a­gog CLD has launched a fundraiser to col­lect money for the Club des pe­tits de­je­uners du Que­bec (CPDQ) which serves roughly 18,000 break­fasts to school chil­dren an­nu­ally. The or­ga­ni­za­tion is work­ing with sev­eral lo­cal inns un­til Oc­to­ber 17th to raise the money.

Guests at the par­tic­i­pat­ing inns will get a serv­ing of ‘re­al­ity’ with their break­fasts as servers have been in­structed to ex­plain about the cause to the clients and ask if they are in­ter­ested in do­nat­ing. “I was hap­pily sur­prised with the in­ter­est and gen­eros­ity shown by our clients. This morn­ing, a client put a twenty dol­lar bill in my do­na­tion box,” com­mented Francine Berg­eron, the owner of one of the par­tic­i­pat­ing inns, Au Chant du Coq.
