Contributions to needy families

WELLINGTON – Dec. 6, 2013 – Just in time for Christmas, RDÉE Prince Edward Island employees have just contributed a nice total of $325.25 to the Evangeline Region’s three Catholic parishes so that they, in turn, can help needy parishioners.

On Nov. 29, they organized a Christmas potluck dinner and auction sale for the people who work in the Community Business Centre in Wellington. More than 20 people showed up to partake in the annual event.

In the photo, employee Jeannine Arsenault, left, is shown presenting a third of the total ($107.75) to Yvette Collicutt, representing the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel Parish committee that helps families in need. These committees distribute their funds year round, not just at Christmas, when parishioners are in need of assistance.
