BCF employees raise $190,000 for the Centraide Campaign

November 20th, 2017

Monday, November 20, 2017– It is with much pride that BCF announces that it will remit a contribution of more than $190,000 following its 2017 Centraide Campaign.

The BCF team, with an outstanding show of solidarity again this year, raised the record sum of $190,000. The firm not only reached the target it set at the start of the campaign, it surpassed it, hands down!

By participating in some twenty activities held in Montreal and Quebec City over a period of two weeks in November, the BCF team managed to raise this money, which will go towards funding various Centraide assistance programs to help those in need.

From improving the lives of communities, to combating childhood illiteracy, to meeting the basic needs of those who are less fortunate, and breaking the isolation that unfortunately plagues certain people, Centraide programs are recognized as being agents for positive change throughout Quebec.

Unfortunately, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is growing wider, and the face of poverty is changing, with youth and families now dealing with hardship. Through this involvement, we are trying to make a difference and have proven our sensitivity to this social issue.

“Thanks to everyone for your great work, and special thanks to the 2017 Centraide committee, which again made it possible for us to demonstrate our philanthropic spirit and the humanity that is at the heart of our values. These donations will serve throughout the year to finance organizations and initiatives that make a real difference in the lives of people in need,” declared Mario Charpentier as the 2017 campaign was wrapped up on November 20.
