Food security funding announced by Sainte-Rose MNA Christopher Skeete

Sainte-Rose MNA Christopher Skeete has announced additional financial support for groups in his riding that distribute food and other necessities to the needy.

Sainte Rose CAQ MNA Christopher Skeete has announced nearly $63,000 in subsidies from the provincial government to a half-dozen charitable organizations in his riding which distribute food and other necessities to needy individuals and families.

According to a press release issued by Skeete’s office last week, the Centre de bénévolat/Moisson Laval, the Saint-Vincent de Paul Societies in Sainte-Rose, Saint-Ferdinand and Saint-Léopold, the Centre d’aide Portail, as well as the Maison de Quartier de Fabreville, will be receiving a total of $62,973.

“This financial assistance was necessary so that they could live up to the growing demand for food security,” Skeete said. “I would like to point out the inestimably valuable support of volunteers who work hard during these difficult times. I can see an enormous amount of determination faced with this pandemic, and this brings me to say that together we will overcome this crisis.”
