The Gabriel and Laura Belanger Fund Donation Cheque Presentation

The St. Joseph’s Foundation of Sudbury is pleased to launch the Gabriel and Laura Bélanger Fund in honour of Mr. and Mrs. Bélanger’s collective generosity to their community and to Villa St. Gabriel Villa.

Laura Bélanger has graciously donated $50,000 to start the fund which has been established to support initiatives at Villa St. Gabriel Villa in Chelmsford, Ontario.  Mr. and Mrs. Bélanger’s roots run deep within the community of Chelmsford and both played an integral part in the development of Villa St. Gabriel Villa which opened its doors in March 2011.

“The St. Joseph’s Foundation is most grateful to the Bélanger family for establishing this fund which will allow Villa St. Gabriel Villa to benefit for years to come”, stated Melanie Kanerva, Chair, St. Joseph’s Foundation.

“All of the dollars raised through these funds will go to specific projects and equipment for the Villa residents as chosen by the family on a yearly basis.  This year the funds will go toward the completion of the healing gardens at Villa St. Gabriel Villa.  On behalf of the organization and the residents we serve, I would like to thank the Bélanger  family and donors for their generosity”, stated Jo-Anne Palkovits, President and CEO/Administrator.
