In November, Hotel Saint-Sulpice Montreal support: FRED Foundation
The principle is simple: we invite our guests who stay at the hotel for more than one night not to use the housekeeping service. By doing so, our guests are helping to reduce their ecological footprint, and they’re also contributing to our monthly collection, since for every day they refuse, the hotel donates $5 to a charity close to our hearts.
In the month of November, Sarah Perrin chose the FRED Foundation, which works to improve the quality of life for families, children, and adolescents affected by diabetes throughout the province of Quebec.
Since its foundation in 1974, the Foundation Resources for Diabetic Children has committed as a non-profit organization to improve the lives of children, adolescents, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) throughout Quebec. Our Foundation was created with the goal of building a supportive community and providing essential resources to families facing the challenges of managing T1D in children.
The Mission of FRED Foundation:
FRED contributes to the daily well-being of families, children, and adolescents living with type 1 diabetes throughout the province of Quebec and provides a unique specialized summer camp experience for young diabetics.
FRED’s initial mission was to meet the pressing needs of Camp Carowanis, Quebec’s camp for type 1 diabetic children. Over the years, recognizing the needs of children and families, the Foundation gradually expanded its services: telephone support, training and information activities, opportunities for parents to meet and share, awareness initiatives, gathering of pediatric diabetes health professionals, and other social events.
Through their various programs and initiatives, their goal is to equip families with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate the complexities of diabetes care while breaking the isolation for children living with T1D. They emphasize overall well-being and inclusion, striving to create a healthier and brighter future for all children affected by diabetes.
We’re counting on you and your support, and we’d like to thank you in advance!
