« There’s no better cause than helping sick children in need. Ocean Group is an organization that is involved in its community and doesn’t hesitate to get involved. We were there for the Foundation of the CHU de Québec in 2012, and we’ve been there again more than ten years later. We’re very proud of that, » said Mr. Tanguay.
« The respirator fleet at the Centre mère-enfant Soleil de Québec needs to be renewed, and since the cause of sick children is particularly dear to our hearts, it was only natural for us to become more closely involved. We are delighted to once again be associated with the Foundation of the CHU de Québec as a partner, and to take concrete action in the care and healing of children, » stated Mr. Bain.
