Our colleagues from La Baie offered new coats worth more than $1,200 to people in precarious situations.

“At the clothing counter in La Baie, we offer basic necessities to the community at very low prices. With the rising cost of living, it is increasingly common to see families where adults have jobs seeking our services. That is why it is important to make these goods available to the entire population,” says Réal Lemire, president of the men’s council of the Société St-Vincent-de-Paul de La Baie.
