The Vaudreuil-Dorion based Punjab Sports and Cultural Association recently donated a substantial amount of non-perishable foods and essential items such as toilet paper to La Moisson Sud-Ouest food bank. La Moisson is active in the fight against poverty in the area of food security in the Beauharnois-Salaberry, Haut-Saint-Laurent and Vaudreuil-Soulanges regions.
The Punjab Sports and Cultural Association is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 and they normally arrange cultural events, health seminars to raise awareness, provide school supplies to children of low income families, and more.
This year, with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, they made it their goal to help as many people as possible. Food banks have been receiving much lower donations than usual during this time so they are setting up donations to help out.
The first donation was made April 19 with a second taking place May 17. They have plans to continue helping frontline workers and those in need in the near future.
