The 11 organizations that joined forces with YUL for the campaign are: the Chao Chow Association of Québec, the Cambodian Chinese Association of Canada, the Chinese Seniors Association of Montréal, the Gansu Association of Canada, the Chinese Family Service of Greater Montréal, the Centre Sino-Québec de la Rive-Sud, the Overseas Chinese Service Center in Montreal, the Canada China Entrepreneurs Council, the Montreal Jiuding Club, the Cambodia-Canada Chamber of Commerce and the Montreal's Lions Club.
"The YUL Condominiums team and the 11 organizations in the Québec Chinese community would like to thank all the donors for their generosity. These donations will help support those affected by the spring floods who have enormous needs. We are very pleased to help the Red Cross bring a little comfort to our fellow citizens," said Kheng Ly, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brivia Group and YUL Condominiums.
