Campbellton (N.-B.) – La Fondation des amis de la santé était heureuse de recevoir un chèque de 500 $ de la part du Club des aînés de Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Le Club a organisé un souper spaghetti le mois dernier afin d’amasser des fonds qui serviront à faire l’achat d’équipement médical dont ont besoin les établissements de santé du Restigouche.

Thanks to the efforts of volunteers, the Club was able to make a generous donation to the Friends of Healthcare Foundation. Ms. Samia Awad, Chair of the organization, is happy to know that this contribution will be used to purchase medical equipment in our community.

“The Club des ainés de Notre-Dame-des-Neiges has been supporting the Friends of Healthcare Foundation since 2004, and their cumulative donations add up to $5,000. Each year, these funds are presented as part of the Radiothon “Donnez, ça fait du bien!” event in partnership with CIMS FM. I would like to thank the Club for their devotion and support to the cause of healthcare in the Restigouche”, stated Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Foundation. Mr. Landry would also like to thank the people in the community for attending the spaghetti supper.
