In 2017, the Ateliers Jacob family joins the Book Humanitaire. Ateliers Jacob had been looking for a way to give back and the Book Humanitaire’s mission inspired us to join into their efforts.
The Book Humanitaire gives everyone a chance to help their neighbor, right here in Quebec. It’s a non-for-profit organisation that began in the Laurentians. Rachel Lapierre, president and founder, has been involved in humanitarian missions all over the globe for fifteen years before founding her own local humanitarian organisation. Many volunteers join her to create an exceptional and humane team. Mother Theresa used to say: "Giving the rich a chance to touch the poor". Rachel Lapierre, founder of the Book Humanitaire, has had the privilege to help in the streets of Calcutta alongside Mother Theresa’s right hands. Through it’s initiatives, activities and programs, the Book Humanitaire contributes to make the world a better place.
Knowing this, Ateliers Jacob found a way to contribute but also, to invite their client to do the same by making it more accessible.
Our clients can give material donations (furniture, appliances…) to families in need. The concept that Book Humanitaire uses makes it possible for one to know who their donation goes to, or even to meet the families they are helping. Ateliers Jacob will offer a pick-up service of the material donations, depending on the case.
Please take a few minutes to fill in this form and help us to give back!
