On Monday Dec. 14, the Eastern Townships and Lanaudière issued a call to action to spread positivity and Christmas cheer to non-profit organisations in the two regions.
The initiative comes as a first-time collaboration between the Township’s Regroupement des Organismes Communautaires (ROC) and the Table Régionale des Organismes Communautaires autonomes de Lanaudière (TROCL). This merger brings the total number of non-profits represented to 250.
