Created in 1994 to provide aid to more than 4000 young people living in vulnerable situations, FEVS directs its efforts towards tackling the causes of poverty and social inequalities to break the vicious circle. The foundation wants all children to have an equal opportunity to succeed in school and live a healthy and rewarding life.
FEVS offers several programs for young people. Every year, summer camps and day camps host 50 young people for a fun and positive experience. Another program, Ton sac d’école comme tout le monde(Your school bag like everyone else’s), helps 300 underprivileged children start the school year with all the necessary supplies, plus new running shoes and a winter coat.
Additional foundation activities include a speech therapy service, support for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges CLSC’s OLO nutrition program for pregnant women and a food bank. Pacini Vaudreuil has supported the Fondation des enfants de Vaudreuil-Soulanges since we opened. To date, we have donated more than $16,000 to help vulnerable people in Vaudreuil-Soulanges.
