On December 5th, 2021, starting at 12 p.m., volunteers from municipal services and from the community will cover all the streets of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue to collect donations.
When you hear the sirens and the air flutes on your street, all you have to do is step outside to hand in your donations. Please note that they won’t knock on your door! You can also leave your donations on your front porch or in the entrance hall of a multi-unit building, making sure to identify them clearly by writing “Guignolée”.
If you know of any companies that would like to contribute, or if you want to get involved in this project, contact the Food bank committee!
Due to the generous donations we received in the past few years and our limited storage space, we will give preference to monetary donations, but we will accept any donation.
What types of donations are accepted?
Non-perishable food, hygiene products, cleaning products, cash donations or by check in the name of the Food Bank.
What will your donations be used for?
Your donations will be used to prepare Christmas baskets for families in need in the community as well as to ensure regular support for many individuals or families throughout the year.
We thank you for your generosity and send you our best wishes for the season!

In keeping with its values and motto, the Richelieu International's mission is to promote the Francophonie at the international, national and local levels, as well as to serve the youth through social, educational, cultural, non-partisan and economic policies. This mission contributes to the growth of individuals and communities. The Club is a privileged collaborator of the International Organisation of la Francophonie.
In 1944, the founding of Société Richelieu in Ottawa, Canada's capital, fills a long-felt need of Canada's French-speaking population for social service. Adapted to the mentality, culture and ideals of French Canadians, this new foundation also meets the aspirations of Franco-Americans and those of all francophone countries and groups that have French as idiom. These cultural affinities are not unrelated to the rapid growth of Club Richelieu, first in Canada, then in the United States since 1955, in France and in Africa since 1968.
The Club Richelieu branch in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue was created on September 26, 1953 and some of its founding members are still active today.
Why the name Richelieu?
The name Club Richelieu has its origins in "La Maison Richelieu", the first social service house established in America for the orphans of soldiers and settlers. It was at the request of Cardinal Richelieu that his niece, the Duchesse d'Aiguillon, founded this house, pledging to maintain it on her will. In 1965, Maison Richelieu became a hospital, which became the Hôtel-Dieu de Québec.
Involvement in the Annabellevoise community
The Richelieu Club of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue has been very involved in the community since it was founded in 1953, with helping children and youth as its primary mission. The Club conducts a number of fundraising events throughout the year to give back to members of the community in need. For example, members organize roadblocks, dinner parties and various popular events.
