Invitation - Centraide celebrates 10 years of introducing children to volunteering



    9,000 students will participate in the Caring for Others School Project
    on May 13

    MONTREAL, May 7 /CNW Telbec/ - The 18 Centraides of Quebec invite the
media to cover the Caring for Others School Project which will take place on
the morning of Wednesday, May 13, 2009. Supported by about 100 community
agencies, this vast provincial mobilization aims at awakening children to the
values of volunteering and community service. Students at 200 primary schools
will hear testimony from community agency volunteers and spokespersons, and
participate in caring activities.
    We invite media representatives to contact their local Centraide in order
to arrange interviews or to obtain more information about the activities
surrounding this unique awareness event dedicated to opening the door for
children to the world of volunteering.
