Last May 28, the Quebec Society for Disabled Children welcomed Jean Béliveau to  Camp Papillon for the 26th annual clean up. More than 300 volunteers were on site to paint, repair and renovate the 80 or so buildings at the famous camp for disabled children located in Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez.

After a brief ceremony during which Mr. Jean Béliveau expressed his gratitude to all the volunteers, the Hockey Canada Foundation made a $25,000 contribution to the Jean Béliveau Foundation. This donation will help the Foundation support activities and facilities at Camp Papillon.

Mr. Barry Lorenzetti, secretary of the Hockey Canada Foundation Board of Directors,  said that because of the close link between the Quebec Society for Disabled Children and the Jean Béliveau Foundation over the past 18 years, it was natural to present the Hockey Canada Foundation cheque at Camp Papillon.
