Volunteers at The Charles Lemoyne Hospital and various Chslds who will assist Clientele in both French and English have now elected to wear a bright badge JE PARLE:Francais English
While most volunteers already offer help in both languages. The wearing of the badge is to symbolize their willingness to support and encourage all users to use the language of their choice.
The program while optional for the Volunteers has already had many requests for the Yellow Badge. So next time you need assistance at the hospital and see this badge on a volunteer.
Ask your question in Francais or English . They would be glad you did.
