Centraide Outaouais underlined the important role played by the Maisons des jeunes du Pontiac. The president of the Centraide Outaouais fundraising campaign, Bob Rioux, mentioned that the organization was highlighted as one of the “Coups de cœur” in the region.

Bob Rioux stressed that this fundraising campaign was taking on particular importance in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The impacts are likely to be significant and demands on organizations like Bouffe Pontiac will probably increase given the economic impacts” explains Bob Rioux.

In the MRC Pontiac, seven organizations are supported by Centraide Outaouais, namely Bouffe Pontiac, the Serge-Bélair Center, the Comptoir St-Pierre in Fort-Coulonge / Mansfield, the Pontiac educational garden, the Pontiac youth centers, the Maison of the Pontiac family as well as the Patro de Fort-Coulonge / Mansfield.

The French interview with Bob Rioux is available here.
