Last Thursday, the Sureté du Quebec held its annual lunch fundraiser for the Entraide campaign. Between 11:30 am and 2:00 pm, officers and volunteers waited for clients in the three Louis Luncheonettes, of Sherbrooke. For every lunch served, a dollar was donated to Entraide. Last year, the SQ raised more than $12,000 for the Entraide campaign through several activities, two thirds of the money coming from the pockets of the officers and civil employees of the Estrie SQ.
