What’s better than a good deed? Two good deeds!
We, at Agence Rinaldi-Maestro, sincerely believe that it is better to give than to receive, so we’d like to tell you a little bit about what we were up to in December, a month that is all about solidarity and generosity.
In December, for the second year in a row, the Rinaldi team is participating in a food drive. Over the course of two weeks, we’ll be filling boxes with non-perishable goods and other essential products to donate to Moisson Montréal, who will then distribute everything to different organizations around the island of Montreal. It’s worth noting that last year, Moisson Montréal was able to collect 27,650 kg of food and $144,184 in cash donations! We’re proud to be supporting once again this amazing charity that has been doing good deeds since 1984.
But we’re not done giving yet! For Christmas 2019, instead of giving the traditional material gift to our clients, we decided to do things a little differently by making a $5,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is a place of rest for the parents of children who are sick and hospitalized in Montreal, but who live in a distant region. The donation will be used to sponsor, for a period of five years, a room to house such parents, thus sparing them a costly hotel stay during their child’s medical treatments. A sign posted on the room’s door indicates that the room is offered courtesy of Agence Rinaldi-Maestro and its clients.
These two gestures put us in a festive mood as 2019 is drawing to an end, and they will keep us smiling for a while when we come back to work in the new year!
