The Quebec government has granted $60,000 to Phelps Helps, a program that offers free educational support to students in the Stanstead area. The money will support the plans for the coming year. Orford MNA Gilles Belanger made the announcement Monday at Phelps Helps.
“I’m really impressed with your program,” Belanger said. He said Phelps Helps supports local students in Stanstead and surrounding communities like Ogden, Stanstead Township, and Stanstead East. “It’s a community that needs help,” he said, adding that the program provides a social network that helps students meet challenges. “What they’re doing is wonderful for the kids.” See full story in the Tuesday, Nov. 5 edition of The Record.
