UNIFOR Local 444 takes pride in supporting our community when it needs us most. That is why we have been a strong partner of United Way for many, many years. They have a long history in Windsor-Essex of responding to the most pressing community needs. During the COVID-19 pandemic United Way has stepped up to the plate to support kids and families whose lives have been turned upside down. They have consulted with partners, acted fast, and have responded in a way that should make our entire community proud.
The labour movement has always been there to help our community and give back where we can. This is a value that has been instilled in me personally from my parents, who both have union backgrounds as well. It’s a long-standing partnership that we are so proud of. This year, UNIFOR Local 444 is really happy to lead the United Way campaign. It’s more important than ever that we stand together to support children and families in our community.
For families who were struggling to make ends meet before this global crisis, the last seven months have pushed them to their limits. And others are finding themselves relying on community services for the first time. It’s certainly been a challenging year for all of us, but that is why it is so important to give if you are able. I ask that you consider giving what you can. Even a few dollars will go such a long way to help those who need it most. And for those of us who are able to dig a little deeper this year, I ask that you please consider increasing your gift during this incredibly challenging time.
It is through the power of community that we will get through this difficult time and ensure no one is left behind. Thank you for joining me and UNIFOR Local 444 by making your donation, today!
