Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Sher­broofe

The an­nual Cen­traide cam­paign was launched, last Wed­nes­day, by this year’s cam­paign’s co-pres­i­dents: Eric Lou­bier, Di­rec­tor of the Cana­dian Cen­tre for Map­ping and Earth Ob­ser­va­tion, and Eric Ashby, the gen­eral di­rec­tor of Dom­tar Wind­sor. This year’s ob­jec­tive is $1,600,000.

“Cen­traide Estrie does ad­mirable work in our com­mu­nity so that each per­son can have a place in so­ci­ety and grow with re­spect and dig­nity. I am proud to be a part of this big fam­ily for 2016,” said Mr. Ashby. “To be in­volved for years at the heart of the Cen­traide cam­paign, I can see that we have a cam­paign cab­i­net of vol­un­teers that gets in­volved to im­prove our com­mu­nity to make a health­ier en­vi­ron­ment by giv­ing of their time and of them­selves,” said Mr. Lou­bier.

The cam­paign cab­i­net con­sists of four­teen vol­un­teers who will be vis­it­ing busi­nesses and in­sti­tu­tions in the re­gion to get their sup­port and col­lect do­na­tions. Res­i­dents will re­ceive an in­vi­ta­tion to give by the mail. Each do­na­tion helps to fi­nance 68 or­ga­ni­za­tions that help im­pov­er­ished and vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple in the re­gion and eleven aid pro­grams in the com­mu­nity, help­ing roughly 62,000 peo­ple!

Any­one who would like to make a do­na­tion can call Cen­traide Estrie at 819 569-9281, ext. 223, or make a do­na­tion on­line at www. cen­traideestrie.com.
