Mission and history

30 years of donations and mutual assistance

Le Support has given over $20M to more than 300 organizations throughout Quebec since 1988. The result has been an improvement in quality of life for thousands of intellectually disabled people and their families.

Mission

Le Support raises money to ensure the development of the Société québécoise de la déficience intellectuelle. It supports the Société in its projects and contributes to its visibility and leadership.

The money is raised mainly by collecting and selling used clothing and household items. Le Support plays a major role in protecting the environment by reusing the materials that it collects.

Vision

Le Support wants to maintain its position as a leader in the collection and sale of used clothing and household items. Constantly seeking new ways of doing things, it wants to make the donation process easier in order to increase donations of items for the Fondation.

Le Support advocates the use of new technologies to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Lastly, the organization counts on the quality and engagement of its employees to achieve its goals.
