The Christmas of the Poor launched its 62e countryside all over the region. The objective of this campaign remains the same: to help the greatest number of underprivileged people in the Mauricie region.
The traditional Le Noël du Pauvre Telethon will take place on November 27 from 5 p.m. at the J.-Antonio-Thompson room. The honorary presidency of the telethon has been entrusted to Martin Leblanc, Partner of the accounting firm Mallette.
Martin Leblanc is very involved and committed in his community. He has been a member of the Investment-FLI (Local Investment Fund) committee of IDÉTR (Innovation and Economic Development of Trois-Rivières) since 2007, administrator and treasurer of the Fondation le Grand Chemin (center dedicated to the treatment of drug addiction and cyber dependence for adolescents) since 2013 and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Séminaire St-Joseph de Trois-Rivières (Son Alma Mater) since 2002.
