Today, Wednesday, December 16, 2015, hundreds of volunteers from the Popotte Roulante of Sercovie are walking the streets of Sherbrooke to deliver the traditional Christmas meal to their customers. In fact, nearly 660 people will have the surprise to receive a completely free Christmas meal thanks to the incredible generosity of Mr. Eddy Savoie, President and founder of the Groupe Savoie – Les Residences Soleil.
During the holidays, generosity and mutual aid are very much needed. So it's with an immense pride that Les Residences Soleil decided to, once again, collaborate with Sercovie, for the happiness of their customers. Let's remind ourselves that in 2013, Les Residences Soleil contributed to the expansion of their office by being one of their first financial partners for this project.
"It is with great appreciation and gratitude that we rely once again on their generosity for the benefit of our customers," said Rémi Demers, chief excutive of Sercovie.
