Vide ta sacoche’s fifth annual collection campaign is underway (until the end of November) and aims to collect unopened, unused and unexpired hygiene and cosmetic products. The donations collected will allow Vide ta sacoche to prepare and distribute gift bags filled with care for vulnerable people in our community, including women, youth and seniors. Vide ta sacoche's goal for 2022 is to offer 4,000 gift bags in collaboration with several organizations in the Capitale-Nationale and Chaudière-Appalaches regions. The list of drop-off points is available at www.videtasacoche.com.

An original fundraiser< /strong>

Martin Rousseau, from Quebec, recently organized an original fundraiser for the benefit of the Gilles Kegle Foundation. Martin convinced a few of his friends to accompany him to the hairdresser for the challenge of having his beard and hair shaved off. The initiative paid off, since the sum of $2,365 was donated to the foundation, which carries out more than 800 home visits per week in Quebec, but also in the regions of Vanier, Beaupré and of Charlesbourg. In the photo, Martin Rousseau, before going to the hairdresser, in the company of Gilles Kegle.
