After a brief retirement, Pierre felt the need to be with people again. It is almost as if the mission is in his blood! A couple of years onthe management team, followed by a few others in transportation and supply, finally led him to the Donation Centres. Pierre delights in saying how “Meeting the people who supply the Fripe-Prix Community Boutiques and thus make its mission possible; being able to thank them in person and explaining that all this is possible thanks to their generosity, it is no longer a job…it is a pleasure!”
