Give Back Projects

Community Care: "Give-Back Project"

The Canadian branch of Cher-Mère was opened in August 2013. Just as with our Caribbean locations, Cher-Mère Canada from the start has taken up the mantle of giving back to the community.  Cher-Mère Canada is a member of 1 in 100 + Women Kingston. As faith would have it, Dr. Aba Mortley spoke on behalf of our nominated charity, Youth Diversion and as the winning charity, we were able to turn that $100 donation to over $12,000 to Youth Diversion.


Every month, Cher-Mère chooses a local charity and donates either a portion of sales or services to a local Kingston charity or we encourage our clients to bring in items requested by local organizations for a discount on their services.
