LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 28, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Agropur is dismayed by the distress caused by tornados in the Ottawa and Gatineau areas on September 21 and has donated $25,000 to support the Red Cross's relief efforts. The devastating winds cut a swath of destruction across the region, smashing buildings and leaving families homeless. Our thoughts are with the affected families and we hope our donation will help ensure that the victims' urgent needs are met as soon as possible.
