QUEBEC CITY, August 29, 2022 – Korem donated $50,000 to the Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (LDT) Foundation, whose mission is to organize turnkey activities that encourage a balance between sports, arts, and academics among young people, with a strong commitment to the third cycle of elementary school.
Thanks to the contribution of Korem and other donors, the sum of $400,000 was given to the Foundation, which will enable free artistic and sports activities to young students from the Capitale-Nationale Region during the school years 2022–2023 to 2024–2025.
“Social responsibility has always been at the heart of the company. This is why we continue to be involved in our community, especially with young people, who are extremely important to Korem. We were immediately touched by the mission of the LDT Foundation, which is in line with our corporate values of collaboration and courage and contributes to our desire to support youth development,” says Sébastien Vachon, founder and CEO of Korem.
The group of generous donors of which Korem is a part was gathered by Mr. Luc Guillot, partner at Mallette and ambassador of the LDT Foundation. Together, they had the opportunity to participate in a tuna fishing activity in Gaspé on August 20 and 21, accompanied by the co-president of the organization, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.
In addition to supporting the LDT Foundation, Korem also contributes to the education of young people by being one of the proud partners of 42 Quebec since the opening of the school, which offers 100% free computer training, accessible to all, and without prerequisites.
