Charlemagne Quebec, [Canada]
Meritorious Service Medal
Decoration awarded on March 25, 2015
Thérèse Tanguay Dion is dedicated to ensuring the well-being of countless students in Quebec through the organization that she established in 2006. At the beginning of each school year, the Fondation maman Dion helps thousands of young people from underprivileged backgrounds by providing them with the school supplies, clothing and glasses they need to start the year with confidence and pride. The generosity, humility and dedication of this caring woman of action have played a significant role in boosting the self-esteem and desire to succeed in these children at a time in their lives when they need it the most.
