In an effort to be able to provide Christmas necessities to those in our community that are in need, they have completely changed collection efforts in order to comply with the physical distancing requirements that are related to COVID-19. There are two ways to donate to the Guignolée: You can send an etransfer to clubrichelieugs@gmail.com (receipts provided upon request) or donate from the comfort of your vehicle on December 5th and 6th, from 11am to 5 pm, when they will be setting up Guignolée stations. There will be strategic locations in order to accommodate the large territory that has always been covered door to door. The donation stations are as follows: Hansen's Meat Shop – New Denmark, Drummond Municipal Building, Bellefleur Tire Shop – Tobique Rd, Caisse Populaire Grand Sault – parking lot, Home Hardware – Broadway Boulevard, Ultramar – Ouellette St, Loune's Place / Julie's Car Wash – Madawaska Rd, École Elementaire Sacré Coeur – Boul. E.H Daigle, St Andre – Rec Centre, St. Leonard - Four Corners As every year in the past, Club Richelieu are counting on our region’s big generosity once again to ensure a Merry Christmas for all.
