CHATHAM, ON, Nov. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - Living true to the theme "We Give Today, To Improve Tomorrow," Union Gas employees and retirees reaffirmed their passionate support for United Way by exceeding their 2018 campaign goal, raising a total of $1,008,734 for United Way's across Ontario in 2018.
"At Union Gas we are honoured to have the opportunity to lend our support to such a worthwhile organization which helps to improve the lives of individuals and families in the communities where we work and live," said Steve Baker, president, Union Gas. "Every year our employees and retirees put their heart and soul into the campaign to raise funds for United Way knowing the work they do will improve the quality of life of people in need."
The company's United Way theme reflects the heart of the campaign, but it also captures employees and retirees' spirit of giving. Numerous fundraising events led by employees were held throughout the year to raise money. Union Gas matches individual donations dollar for dollar, and the matching dollars go to each local United Way.
Funds will go to support United Way agencies and programs that address the local needs of the communities they serve. The mission is to improve lives and strengthen the community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
