The Québec City Convention Centre is proud to have supported the 3 Things for Canada initiative by taking part in 3 acts of community service in 2017. The Centre’s team has helped to reach the overall objective of 100 million things, whether large or small, as part of Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations. This very simple idea, launched by the mayor of Calgary to encourage his fellow citizens to do three things to improve their city, has snowballed in organizations and municipalities across Canada.
Here is what the Québec City Convention Centre team did to give back to the community:
The team also harvested vegetables and herbs on Promenade Desjardins at the Québec City Convention Centre. This food was donated to Le Pignon Bleu, a multiservice community organization that works with children aged 0 to 12 years, families and unemployed persons in Québec City.
