Since June 2019, the Foundation has agreed to consider youth housing units in its actions. Thanks to the Canadian Tire of Gaspe and the Jumpstart Foundation, which is donating $5,000 to the Fondation Santé Côte-de-Gaspé, the Centre Jeunesse la Vigie will be able to benefit from new sports equipment.
This amount has made it possible to acquire, among other things, new bicycles, protective helmets, volleyball nets, etc. thus offering a better quality of life to young people in this establishment.
The Foundation is proud to collaborate with the Jumpstart Foundation in this project, which is in line with our mission: to improve the quality of care, health and social services for our entire community.
You can also help contribute to the youth center grants by making a specific donation to the Foundation!
