IMMEX helps those in need by supporting Moisson Estrie. This organization’s goal is to contribute to the well-being of people who are in need. Moisson Estrie offers food to the needy either directly or through intermediary organizations. Moisson Estrie believes that food aid is not an end to itself, but rather an excellent way to intervene with individuals and contribute to the fight against social exclusion.

LA FONDATION DE LA CSRS
Immex is committed to the social success and perseverance of young people who will form tomorrow’s society. To do this, it has chosen to partner with the Fondation de la Commission scolaire de la Region-de-Sherbrooke, which aims to promote the fight against school drop-out, to develop a sense of belonging to the school, support different alternative and innovative projects to counter drop-out and facilitate the path of young people to obtain a first degree or a qualifying training.

La Coalition sherbrookoise pour le travail de rue
IMMEX wishes to support, through the Coalition sherbrookoise pour le travail de rue, people who broke or are at risk of breaking with their loved ones and their community. This outreach work is done on their own land, in areas of freedom (street, parks, schools, shops, etc.), on foot, but also through the Macadam J bus, their mobile unit intervention. The Coalition’s team practice outside of conventional structures. Without discrimination, street workers offer young people a human welcome, the reassurance of a bond of trust and support to the appropriate resources to meet their needs.

On request, the Fondation also provides close to 200 food baskets to people who are referred by social workers from CLSC.
