Major Partnership With « Dans La Rue »: Following An Initial Donation of $20,000 Last January, the Sutton Network Makes a Second Donation of $55,000 to Support Homeless Youth
MONTREAL, CANADA–(Marketwired – Sept. 28, 2015) – As part of the De la rue aux étoiles event which was held at the Montreal Science Centre, Ms. Julie Gaucher, Vice-President and Chief of Operations at groupe sutton – quebec, presented a $55,000 donation to Dans la rue on behalf of Sutton brokers, franchisees, and the parent company.
Last January groupe sutton – quebec announced an important partnership with the organization whose mission is crucial. This partnership began with a $20,000 donation from the Group’s parent company, and a commitment by the entire sutton – quebec network to make a set donation for every transaction it carries out.
« Our agreement promised that donations would be paid once a year. However, with the arrival of colder weather, we thought it would be helpful to move this payment forward. We are very proud of the amount raised in less than six months; this bodes well for the future! I am grateful to all of Sutton’s brokers and franchisees; their strong commitment to this cause and the combined strength of the network can indeed move mountains! » said Julie Gaucher.
« This generous gift makes a serious, significant, and concrete difference to the youth in precarious situations that Dans la rue supports every day. We are very grateful to Sutton’s network and to its clients! » said Ms. Cécile Arbaud, Executive Director of Dans la Rue.
Dans la rue has grown thanks to the vision and hard work of its founder, Father Emmett Johns « Pops ». Over the years, more and more people have recognized the importance of Pops’ mission and supported the organization by donating time, skills, and money. Dans la rue has thus become a multidisciplinary team of skilled professionals and dedicated volunteers, with the common goal of delivering Pops’ vision: helping young people to survive on the streets and to get back on their feet.
