Notre-Dame de Paris Restoration Priority with JCDecaux
JCDecaux Donates over $22+ Million for Restoration
JCDecaux, as one might expect, is donating to the rebuilding of the 850-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral which was devastated by fire earlier this week.
What is unexpected and to be applauded, is the amount, nearly $22, 600,000. That is a lot of dough. In addition to the direct financial contribution, Decaux is also donating space and employee matching funds among other efforts to restore the iconic French site.
