“Quebec Volunteer” award goes to a Marist Brother

23/06/2018: Canada

Brother Leopold Charland, from the province of Canada, received the ‘Quebec Volunteer’ award after being selected from several candidates nominated by 25 volunteer organisations in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Canada.

Br Léopold received an official document in April to underscore his great dedication and participation in the ‘La Porte Ouverte’(The open door) organisation.

It is an organization with three components: offering help for immigrants and French lessons for newcomers and for the general public.

The Centre du Livre, established in 1994, is an integral part of the organisation. Br Léopold is very active and is responsible for the supply and operation of the library.
Last year, he was given another tribute for his work in the same organization.

The provincial deputy for the county of Saint-Jean, Dave Turcotte (see photo), gave him an honorary certificate, as well as 20 other volunteers from the region.

Br Léopold is also very proud of his certificate of honour granted by the non-profit organisation Héma-Québec for his 200 blood donations.

He is a brother who is retired, but he is also a great volunteer at heart and, like Saint Marcellin Champagnat, he is deeply aware of his neighbor and of the poor.
