Union Gas Supports Waterloo Region Children's Safety Village With $3,500 Grant To Support Annual Children's Hero Awards

Cambridge, ON, May 30, 2016 - Union Gas supports Waterloo Region Children's Safety Village helping to recognize young safety heroes in the community, as well as enhance safety education, through a $3,500 grant.

"At Union Gas, safety governs everything we do, whether we are building a pipeline or installing a gas meter at your home," said Rick Bigelow, utility service manager, Union Gas. "Because of our safety culture, we make it a priority to support local safety initiatives like the Children's Hero Awards, which recognize our young community safety heroes."

The Children's Hero Awards recognize children in the community who have performed a heroic act or who have performed at a level that is beyond expectations, while contributing to a safer community.  Students were nominated by teachers, parents, members of the community, police, fire and emergency medical services personnel.

"The Safety Village is grateful for the ongoing support we receive from Union Gas.  They are a valued sponsor in our Village and an annual sponsor for our Children's Hero Awards.  Additionally, we have been the proud partner to many of their Helping Hands projects," said Lisa Hummel, coordinator, Waterloo Region Children's Safety Village.  "We are so grateful for the generous support you continue to provide and for your commitment to helping the children in the Waterloo Region stay safe!"
