GENERAL VANIER STUDENTS GIVE BACK TO RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

MONTREAL, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 – With the holidays around the corner, on  Thursday, December 12  (noon), the students of General Vanier Elementary School in St. Leonard will bring a smile to the residents of the Ronald McDonald House (5800 Hudson Road), adjacent Sainte-Justine Hospital.

With the quickest way to one’s heart being through their stomach, General Vanier has partnered with Aramark Catering, Lafrenaie, Charcuterie Noel, LT Traiteur and Unik Chocolates to prepare and serve a hearty lunch for the residents of the house. While children normally abstain from doing the dishes, these students will also clean-up following the meal.

Although the meal will definitely brighten everyone’s day, General Vanier will also be surprising the Ronald McDonald House with a donation. To ensure that they provide a lasting impression, a dress down day will be held to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House.
