EMSB gives their time for the Cancer Research Society

On Saturday, November 6, 2010 a team of 30, past and present employees of the EMSB head office along with some of their family and friends gave their time volunteering at the Cancer Research Society in downtown Montreal.

They successfully accomplished in 6 hours divided into 3 groups. Group one opened 40,000 returned reply coupons (15 boxes) from donors. Group two worked on assembling 8 200 FRENCH and 14 300 ENGLISH in Memoriam packages to be mailed out to potential donors upon request, and group three proceeded to the sorting and arranging of 3,000 2010 X-Mas cards (English and French) A small group of 5 helped make a thorough and much needed inventory of 2 stockrooms, pack boxes and rearrange them, helping to put some order to the place!

Thanks to their help, the Society was able to sort through all the mess and prepare the cards to be mailed out to potential donors!

Thank you to all who came out on a Saturday and thank you to Carol Wong who organized the volunteers.
