Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF - Ma­gog

On Mon­day, Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid an­nounced $15,000 in fi­nan­cial aid for the Villa Pier­rot or­ga­ni­za­tion which helps young moth­ers with at least one child un­der five years of age who are liv­ing in poverty. When the aid was pre­sented to Hilda Gal­li­enne, the pres­i­dent of the Villa Pier­rot Board, Mr. Reid took the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss with her the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s present and fu­ture is­sues.

“The ac­com­pa­ni­ment work pro­vided by the per­son­nel of Villa Pier­rot an­swers an ur­gent need in our com­mu­nity. Work­ing to­wards the well-be­ing of moth­ers and their chil­dren who strug­gle with lim­ited fi­nan­cial means is a mis­sion that I salute and one that gives me great plea­sure to sup­port,” com­mented Mr. Reid.

“When I spoke about Villa Pier­rot and the work done to sup­port the moth­ers in the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC with my col­league and Min­is­ter, he seemed very re­cep­tive. Min­is­ter Bar­rette im­me­di­ately saw the im­por­tance of this mis­sion and quickly de­cided to sup­port it,” added Mr. Reid.

Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid pre­sented fi­nan­cial aid in the amount of $15,000 to Villa Pier­rot Board Pres­i­dent Hilda Gal­li­enne on Mon­day.
