27 mars 2020
LaSalle, March 27, 2020 - Mayor Manon Barbe and the members of LaSalle's Borough Council held a special meeting on Friday, March 27, to adopt a special contribution of $30,000 to Centraide of Greater Montréal's Emergency Fund. This fund will enable Centraide to quickly implement measures to help the isolated and vulnerable population of Greater Montréal.
"As soon as we learned of the creation of this Emergency Fund, my colleagues on Council and I decided that LaSalle should also contribute to it. Centraide of Greater Montréal already provides funding to many community agencies with a vital mission to help vulnerable residents; however, faced with a pandemic, we must all increase our support to Centraide," stated Borough Mayor Manon Barbe.
This $30,000 contribution to Centraide is in addition to the $100,000 fund created by LaSalle to support local organizations in the Borough that are providing crucial assistance to LaSalle residents in need during this difficult time.
