150 happy moms!

On the occasion of Mother’s Day, 150 gift bags of local Brome-Missisquoi products were purchased! The Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation wishes to thank all the participants, donors and merchants for the success of the Give Brome-Missisquoi! event. We are pleased to announce that together we have raised $6,000 in benefits. To recognize moms even more, this money will be allocated to enhance the Birthing Pavilion.

The BMP Foundation team prepared the 150 gift bags just in time to have everything ready for pick-up on Saturday, May 8, 2021. Each shopper had the opportunity to choose from 6 of the 9 participating businesses as their pick-up location. They could choose what was easiest for them based on their location and schedule. At the same time, if they didn’t already know the business they chose, they had the opportunity to discover a new talent in their area!

The BMP Foundation would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every merchant and artisan who collaborated on this project. Without them, this gift bag would not have been possible. Thank you to Maison Oléa, L’Archipel, Confiseries Hansel et Gretel, L’Apothicaire, ONEKA, Aquamille, L’Écolo Rétro and Zayat Aroma. A special thanks to Pûrvita Elderberry for lending us their premises so that we could assemble the gift bags in a safe and distant environment. Thanks also to ONEKA and Zayat Aroma for their generous donations!

We hope you had a great Mother’s Day!
