Gatineau RONA stores’ food bank support reaches $1 million

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. — Lowe’s Canada announced this week that its four corporate RONA stores in the Outaouais region handed over a $217,000 cheque to Moisson Outaouais as part of the 2019 Loto-Moisson campaign. The stores have supported the food bank since 2011 and in 2013 created the annual fundraising campaign, which raises thousands of dollars each year through the sale of tickets at the four stores and other points of sale. “As every year, our teams are firmly committed, and this fundraising campaign is especially important to them,” Junior Charbonneau, regional director of operations at Lowe’s Canada, said in a release. “Our customers are all very generous, and we are grateful to them.” Since 2011, the Outaouais RONA corporate stores have presented a grand total of $1 million to the Moisson Outaouais.
