MONTREAL — Joseph Broccolini, executive vice-president of Broccolini, donated $100,000 in support of the REA Foundation.
Founded in 1949, Montreal-based Broccolini offers the full range of planning, construction and management services for industrial, commercial, institutional and residential buildings. Since it opened its doors, it has donated over $1.5 million. The REA Foundation is a dedicated hospital foundation for the Institut universitaire sur la readaptation en deficience physique de Montreal (IURDPM). which specializes in physical rehabilitation.
“During the Grands Batisseurs evening, this foundation captured our hearts and I think it deserves all our attention,” said Broccolini in a statement. “Every day, recovery from accidents and diagnoses depends on rehabilitation, an area still largely unknown by the general public. We hope that this major donation will propel the REA Foundation forward and make a difference in the quality of life of the thousands of beneficiaries it supports.”
“The REA Foundation, the result of a recent merger of three physical rehabilitation foundations, could not have hoped for better news,” Patrice Bergeron, chair of the board of directors of the REA Foundation.
“We are honoured that Broccolini has made this incredible gesture to our cause. This support will have a tangible impact on thousands of people with motor, sensory or language impairments who have to confront the challenge of physical rehabilitation.”
