We love that they were welcoming of the idea of being our silent title sponsor of QCIC's collaborative presentation, Jalgua Peace Festival. The Jalgua Peace Festival is a collaboration with globally-recognized Peace Ambassador, Emmanuel Jal and AYC ( Habitat for Humanity Prince Edward Hastings was quick to step into action by furnishing the BIPOC+ Peace Pavilion and sponsoring the labour and cost of transporting furniture and home decor before & after the festival.
Home Depot responded promptly with so much warmth. They invested a generator and lights to power our evening. Belleville Community Police took initiative to step up as a financial sponsor and volunteered to help design the Peace Pavilion's atmosphere.
