Not for Profit Groups

Lafarge continues to be a supporter of the many not for profit groups in the Fonthill area. In 2010, through the Fonhtill Rotary Club donated food items to support Pelham and Port Care’s Christmas Food Drive, providing turkeys and hams for food baskets distributed to families in need.

In addition, Lafarge, its employees and customers collected toys to support Pelham’s Fire Departments Toys for Tots toy drive. This provided many unwrapped toys to be distributed to families in need within the Fonthill and Pelham area with toys for kids to unwrap on Christmas day.

Lafarge contacted the local Lion’s Club to help prepare the food for the 2009 community event and they responded. The
Lion’s Club of Fonthill prepared enough food to feed the 650 hungry people that attended the community event. After
lunch, Lafarge presented the Fonthill Lion’s Club a cheque for $1,500.00 as a thank-you for the great work the group
did preparing and serving the food. This money will be used by the Lion’s Club in the community for local initiatives.
Through the Lion’s Club, Lafarge’s donation is helping serve the needs of the local Fonthill community.
