An amount of $90,250 was raised on Thursday, Dec. 1, during Laval’s Media Food Drive.
That includes two checks for $15,000, which were presented by the City of Laval and the Caisse Desjardins of Centre and East Laval. Laval’s multinational Couche-Tard also gave $10,000.
The money raised during that day will be donated to the Centre de bénévolat et moisson Laval (CBML) and the Société St-Vincent-de-Paul.
In addition, nearly $50,000 was raised during the street drive of that 22nd edition. It represents an 18 per cent increase from last year’s drive.
Provincially, more than $2.8 million was raised on the same day. Laval ranked ninth among the regions having raised the largest amount. (N.P.)
