Launch of a drive to raise money for fire victims at 41 rue Saint-Hubert

Monday, 15 April, 2019

One week after the major fire that destroyed a 35-unit apartment building at 41 rue Saint-Hubert, Ville de Châteauguay, together with its partners, is launching a drive to raise money for the disaster victims with the participation of over 20 merchants and municipal bodies.

La Rencontre Châteauguoise, which has acquired considerable expertise in this area, will manage the collection of online donations at rencontrechateauguoise.com. Those who wish to help affected families can donate today on the organization’s website. They only have to indicate “for Châteauguay disaster victims” in the box marked “Note additionnelle pour le marchand” to ensure that their donations are given directly to the fire victims.

A list of businesses and public buildings accepting cash donations is included with this press release and is also available on the City’s website at www.ville.chateauguay.qc.ca/en. Cash will be collected by means of specially identified donation boxes provided for this purpose. As of April 15, a total of 22 establishments have confirmed their participation. This number could increase because we are expecting to hear from other businesses shortly. If more organizations join, the list will be updated on the City’s website. The Centre communautaire de Châteauguay, located at 3 rue Principale, already started collecting donations of goods on April 8.

For both online and cash donations, 100% of the funds received will go directly to the disaster victims. Donations will be redistributed according to needs, after analysis by the committee formed for this purpose.

“I would like to sincerely thank all the emergency workers who tried everything to limit the damage and assist these people who have lost everything and also thank the whole community which has shown tremendous empathy and generosity toward these shaken families. I am proud to be a Châteauguay resident and proud to see that we are able to stick together in the circumstances,” emphasized Pierre-Paul Routhier, Mayor of Châteauguay.
