Union Gas Helps Goderich Celebrate Earth Day With A $1,000 Grant To Plant Trees

GODERICH, ON, April 21, 2016 - Union Gas supports the Town of Goderich with a $1,000 grant to purchase trees to plant as part of their Earth Day celebration.

"At Union Gas, we care about the environment," said Luc Cormier, utility service manager, Union Gas. "That's why we support important environmental programs such as the Earth Day celebration, in the communities we serve."

The Town of Goderich has been celebrating Earth Day with Union Gas and the youth of Goderich for almost 30 years.  Every year there’s a tradition of planting two trees at local elementary and high schools.  With an added educational component, youth learn the importance of urban trees, why they should be cared for and shown the proper tree planting techniques including how to maintain them after the planting. 

"This generous donation from Union Gas helps to strengthen our collaborative partnership and provides trees which are so important to our environment," said Kevin Morrison, mayor, Town of Goderich. "Working together we are better equipped to keep our community informed and safe."
