In October 2016, the SCQ (Société des casinos du Québec) organized a food drive and volunteer day in its establishments. The goal was to support a cause it has taken to heart for many years: food security.
Our employees helped collect more than 11,000 kg of foodstuffs, which were then distributed to the partner Moisson organizations: Moisson Montréal, Moisson Outaouais, Moisson Laurentides, and the Service alimentaire et d’aide budgétaire de Charlevoix-Est, associated with Moisson Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean.
More than 300 employees from the casinos, Espacejeux.com, SCQ and Loto-Québec also joined forces for a volunteer day on October 20, taking part in various tasks, such as collecting foodstuffs at grocery stores and sorting them in a warehouse, or preparing meals in support of the Moisson organizations’ activities.
Everyone’s efforts helped make the October initiatives a resounding success and make the partnership between SCQ and the Moisson organizations stronger than ever.
Over the past few years, the casinos and Moisson organizations have been working together in support of food security. The partnership aims to offer employees opportunities to positively contribute to their local community by taking part in volunteer or community commitment operations.
