This fall, The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) is involved for the third year in a row in helping primary school students through the Opération Bonne Mine program of the Société Saint-Vincent de Paul. The goal of this initiative is to help families at the start of the school year and help kids see school in a more positive way.
This year, JCCBI made a donation that will provide students at four primary, schools located near the Jacques Cartier Bridge, with direct assistance to buy the supplies.
Opération Bonne Mine helps cover the basic needs of children and teens while acting directly on the key elements of school success, such as self-esteem, group belonging, and personal excellence. Classroom and extracurricular activities, meals, educational materials, transportation and daycare services all come together to create the best conditions to promote academic success.
We wish all of these students a fantastic school year! Who knows? Maybe the children we help today will be our engineers of tomorrow!
