You have also brought happiness and hope in this time of pandemic, which has confined the elderly in our community for too long. Once again, thank you, and I assure you to praise your cheese P’tit Québec in our region.
President of the Club de l’Amitié
In small towns across Québec, many small projects go unfinished because of lack of funding and resources. P’tit Québec saw this as an opportunity to help. “P’tits projets pas si P’tits” is an initiative which envisions empowering communities one stop at a time. The small tasks we complete give the community better spaces to come together, making for a big impact.
The beginning of a tradition
Kicking off on September 25 in the small municipality of Sainte-Rose-du-Nord in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region, population: 439, the P’tit Québec team of volunteers got right to work on the first P’tits projets pas si P’tits visit. Throughout the day, the team completed several projects including:
- Installation of a protective railing along a scenic walk
- Installation of a new bike rack
- Repainting the playgrounds fence and picnic tables
- Replenishing the sand in the sandbox
- Replacing a popular sitting bench
- Replacing the local school’s baseball benches
- Donated to the local senior citizen’s residence
- Donated school supplies to the Sainte-Rose Elementary School
- Over $25,000 combined in donations, equipment, and labour
- Hosting a community lunch (serving over 180 grilled cheese sandwiches!)
