$70K in donations will be directed to community partners
The La Madeleine Help in a Cup program has made great strides helping local charities during a challenging economic time as result of COVID-19. The virtual soup-kitchen program has benefited recipients with a total of $70K in cash and in-kind donations. The charitable program began in March and was later extended through the end of April. Customers were able to add soup and bread to their pick-up and curbside orders for a $1, which went toward Help in a Cup donations.
