Tribute to Reynald Labelle
Chair of the Board of Directors
June 2013 – June 2019
Mr. Labelle’s time with the Aylmer Food Centre has been relatively short, but very productive. His commitment to the Centre has been remarkable. He dedicated a lot of time and energy in order to ensure the sustainability of our organization.
By getting involved, Mr. Labelle believes in the right to not be hungry. In the summer of 2014, at a low-time for the Centre which almost led to closing its doors, Mr. Labelle worked insatiably to get it back on track. He set up an administrative structure and ensured that services are provided to families in need. It is clear that he played a major role in the survival of the organization.
Two years later, Mr. Labelle learned that the Coop Santé Aylmer, owners of 67 du Couvent, was closing its doors in the coming months. With perseverance and resilience, he began the process to buy the building. It resulted in a notarized deal on October 31, 2016. This purchase will ensure the sustainability of the Centre.
Mr. Labelle is faithful to his social concerns and human compassion for families in need. It is without a doubt that Mr. Labelle’s time at the Centre has ensured the survival of the organization. He deserves our utmost consideration.
