Many thanks to Mamie Clafoutis

Du Parc YMCA - March 18 2016

On March 9, Nicolas Delourmel, co-owner of the Mamie Clafoutis bakeries, and Camille Villard, head of the company’s marketing and communications department, presented a cheque for $10,000 to the Du Parc YMCA for its annual fundraising campaign. During the event, Marie-France Hébert, Director of the YMCA, stressed the importance of this type of donation for the YMCA: “We are very pleased and fortunate to have a partner such as the Mamie Clafoutis bakeries. The funds collected during their “Opération des petits pains du cœur 2015” will allow disadvantaged children and children with special needs to enjoy a fun and rewarding day camp experience. Thanks to Mamie Clafoutis, children from all walks of life including kids with autism, attention deficit or any other disability will be able to get active, swim and make friends at day camp. On behalf of the children and families in our community, we would like to thank all Mamie Clafoutis employees and customers for their engagement and generosity.”
