The members of a church community in Brownsburg-Chatham are coming together to make sure everyone has what they need to make their Christmas festive this year.
La Guignolée is taking registrations from residents in need of a Christmas basket on the 26, 28, and 30 of November, and on December 3, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Saint-Louis-de-France Church in Brownsburg-Chatham. No registrations will be accepted on dates other than those listed. Applicants should bring proper identification and information about their income and expenses when they complete their application form, and almost show proper proof of residence.
The program is organized by Sainte-Trinité parish, especially for people living in St-Philippe, Pine Hill, and Brownsburg.
La Guignolée baskets will be distributed to recipients on December 16 between 9 a.m. and 11:30 noon.
Donations of money and items for La Guignolée will be accepted on Saturday, December 8 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at three locations. They include the basement of Saint-Louis-de-France church, the intersection of rues Principale and des Érables, and in the parking lot of Saint-Philippe church.
La Guignolée baskets will be distributed to recipients on December 15 between 9 a.m. and 11:30 am.
Similar projects that provide food baskets at Christmas exist in many communities. Guignolée is a traditional Québécois name for such activities.
