Entraide diabétique du Québec (EDQ) was established by Diabetes Québec in 1994. This year therefore marks the 22nd anniversary of this non-profit organization whose mission is to provide financial support for the activities of Diabetes Québec. The EDQ’s primary activity consists in collecting donated textiles and small second-hand items for resale.
Its head office is located in Montréal, where it shares the premises of Diabetes Québec. This is where all activities of the organization’s three Québec branches are coordinated. Its centres in Quebec City, Trois-Rivières and Saint-Jérôme oversee donation pick-ups, which are carried out seven days a week in the municipalities it serves.
