TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - Just in time for the holidays, CAW Local 112
will be donating thousands of dollars worth of toys for use at the newly
renovated children's play area at the Native Canadian Centre in Toronto. The
presentation will take place at 10 a.m. at the Native Canadian Centre on 16
Over the last seven weeks, dozens of CAW members in the Greater Toronto
Area have been volunteering their labour to renovate the centre, with
donations of cabinets, computer desks and terminals from several local unions.
The first phase of the project was recently completed with the renovation
of the children's play area. In the spring, a wheelchair ramp will be built as
well as other reparations to the front of the building.
The donation of toys is a continuation of the joint CAW-Assembly of First
Nations infrastructure re-building projects as part of the Make Poverty
History for First Nations campaign.
