Edmundston Truck Stop donates to UMCE for scholarship

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — The Edmundston Truck Stop, located in the territory of the Maliseet First Nation Madawaska, contributed the sum of $25,000 to the Fundraising Development of the University of Moncton.

This contribution will be used to create the Edmundston Truck Stop Scholarship Fund. This fund will allow the annual granting of scholarships to students enrolled full-time at the Edmundston campus who are part of the following categories: women, aboriginals, visible minorities or with disabilities.

Edmundston Truck Stop is located one kilometer from the Edmundston campus. Established in 2013, it has enjoyed constant back and forth traffic caused by the presence of the post-secondary institution. But most of all, its owner, Vicki Wallace-Godbout, is convinced of the value and impact of the University of Moncton in New Brunswick everywhere, and particularly in the northwest of the province. She holds a law degree from the University of Moncton and is on the board of Evolution Fundraising.

For information or to donate to the University of Moncton, contact the Office of Philanthropic Development at 506-858-4130 or 1-888-362-1144, send an email to development @ umoncton.ca or visit the website of Evolution Fundraising.
