C$200,000 donated to Lac-Saint-Jean community and health organizations
On August 23, 2018, Resolute donated C$200,000 to four community and health organizations based in the Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec. Through Resolute’s 2018 golf tournament, the company raised $95,000 for the Dolbeau-Mistassini and Roberval hospital foundations, respectively, as well as $5,000 for the regional chapter of Leucan, and another $5,000 for the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation.
“The determination and charitable spirit demonstrated by the volunteers of community and health organizations in the region inspire us to offer our support year after year. These organizations overcome difficult conditions and offer first-rate services to the public, despite limited resources,” stated Yves Laflamme, president and chief executive officer. “As one of the region’s largest employers, we appreciate and support community involvement.”
Leucan is an organization that funds clinical research into pediatric cancer, and offers resources to sick children and their families. The On the Tip of the Toes Foundation organizes therapeutic expeditions outside the hospital environment for young people living with cancer.
Resolute’s contributions help hospital foundations procure and replace equipment given the ever-increasing need for quality health care.
