Asmick Jean-Jacques, Director of the La Corde Youth Centre of Montreal Youth Unlimited, was recently invited to our Club to accept a donation. Brenda from the Community Committee said:
“We support the Youth Unlimited La Corde Centre. We collect socks for the children who come to the centre and we also give a donation for kids to go to summer camp. My committee and I feel very strongly about the good work that they do in the community: children come to the centre for a hot breakfast, they come for a hot lunch, and they come after school for help with their homework.”
The kids helped by La Corde come from about 60 different nationalities and speak over 50 different languages. La Corde Centre also operates an in-house summer camp.
Asmick Jean-Jacques (Director of La Corde) thanked our Rotary Club for helping them care for the kids:
“We know that your Rotary club helps a lot of organizations and we are happy to be counted among them, so thank you for supporting the work we do in the community.”
