LAUCHING THE 2014 HOMELESS RECOURSE CAMPAIGN

Marc André Coallier est le porte-parole officie de la campagne Recours pour les sans-abri 2014.l

Montreal, November 18, 2014. – Actor and TV host Marc-André Coallier is teaming up with the LÉGER FOUNDATION to help the homeless. Deeply involved in his community and very well connected, the former host of 100 watts has been diving right into the work of the groups and professionals who receive funding from the LÉGER FOUNDATION to gain a better grasp of the realities of people affected by poverty. “It was thanks to the LÉGER FOUNDATION that I met Geneviève, an ex-homeless person who is now a vendor for L’Itinéraire and sits on the magazine’s Board of Directors. I also climbed aboard the mobile clinic run by Médecins du Monde, where I met some of society’s outcasts, people in dire need of health care. I saw men and women who are just trying to carve out a small place for themselves in society.”
