CHARITY DRIVE UPDATE: HELPING MONTREAL WOMEN
As we continue to roll out the results of this exciting initiative, we are so happy to share how this charity drive is affecting those in need. As you may be aware, LE CHÂTEAU of Montreal honoured the spirit of giving this past holiday season with a pledge to help local charities. An idea that sparked from LE CHÂTEAU’s founder, Herschel Segal, from December 26th to 31st, for every dollar sold in any LE CHÂTEAU Outlet store across Montreal, as well as from the LE CHÂTEAU Outlet website, was given in clothing, shoes and accessories to charitable organizations in Canada. After all the sales were counted, this amounted to an impressive $282,182!
As a result, LE CHÂTEAU of Montreal was proud to make nine important donations to Montreal charities, including these three Women’s Charities:
LE CHÂTEAU of Montreal proudly donated $20,921 in goods to those who need it most at Le Chaînon. For women in need, Le Chaînon offers assistance without judgment 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Trained advisors provide professional guidance with total discretion, while 66 women are sheltered every day. Le Chaînon offers a range of services to help women regain confidence in themselves and their futures.
