The 20th edition of the annual Guignolée des Médias fundraiser on December 7 raised at least $140,266 for the Moisson Sud-Ouest food bank. Over 375 volunteers braved chilly temperatures and fanned out over 13 collection sites in seven different municipalities to collect donations from passers-by in the street. In Huntingdon, teams of volunteers, including 24 employees from Maison Russet as well as representatives from area non-profits and organizations, were present throughout the day at the town’s main intersection to help raise funds for the regional food bank. The collection in Huntingdon brought in a total of $6,651.
