5,588 gifts distributed in 2023

At the end of our 2023 fundraising campaign, the Les P’tits Lutins Foundation was able to distribute 5,588 Christmas gifts to people affected by HIV/AIDS across Canada, thanks to our many volunteers and donors. These men, women, and children living with HIV or the disease, facing economic hardship or social isolation, were able to enjoy a little bit of Christmas magic through a carefully wrapped little gift

As has become our custom since the pandemic, nearly half of the gifts were wrapped at home by teams of experienced elves. The other portion was packaged in the spacious premises of Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf on December 9 and 10. 141 people — including employees of Larochelle Conseil, Steamatic, SOQUIJ and Ad Hoc Architectes — took turns to accomplish the task.

None of this would have been possible without the invaluable support of Sylvain Bergeron and our wonderful long-time partners Le Marché des saveurs du Québec, Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf, Paramount Paper Ltd., Chez Nino, Groupe Robert, Dialog Insight, as well as the following individuals and companies:
