Loto-Québec is showing its support by donating $1,000,000 to Québec’s Moisson centers, following the high pressure put by COVID-19 on the healthcare system and some community groups.
Furthermore, Loto-Québec contacted its partners to take stock of any inventory that could be used to help meet urgent needs as soon as its gaming establishments were closed. This led to the delivery of foodstuffs to food banks and supplies to the healthcare network earlier this week.
Loto-Québec is showing its support for Québec’s Moisson network by transferring the sum of $1,000,000, in response to the impact of COVID-19 throughout the community. Loto-Québec commits to support Moisson in a more sustained manner over the next three years, to aid them in their mission of helping the most vulnerable among us. This donation will be equitably distributed between the 19 centers.
To provide fast and concrete aid during these difficult times, Québec’s casinos have already donated foodstuffs from the kitchens of their gaming establishments to foodbanks they have been supporting for several years.
The Ministère de la Santé et des Services Sociaux (MSSS) has been given by Loto-Québec several supplies, including more than 30,000 N95 masks as well as disinfectant products including a large quantity of antiseptic gel, wipes, and pump cartridges. The MSSS will distribute the supplies according to needs on the ground.
Loto-Québec is applying the Québec Government’s recommendations and invites the public to do the same, and it continues to monitor the situation relative to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
