Union Gas Raises A Record $85,030 For United Way London & Middlesex

Company employees show generous nature once again during 2016 campaign

London, ON, November 17, 2016 - Union Gas employees and retirees showed their generous nature once again by donating $85,030 to United Way London & Middlesex in 2016.

"Union Gas has a legacy of giving, a legacy which makes the communities we serve in Ontario stronger and healthier," said Steven Jelich, district manager London/Sarnia, Union Gas.

"Our culture of giving ensures United Way can continue to make critical investments with hundreds of organizations that help people every single day in London and Middlesex," Jelich added.

The company's United Way 2016 theme, "We Give Today, To Improve Tomorrow," captured the ultimate goal of the campaign, but it also captured employees' spirit of giving.

Numerous fundraising events led by employees were held throughout the year to raise money for United Way, which provides vital services in the community and across the province.

"Employees enjoy these events. They are fun, but they are also raising money for an organization that is essential in the province when it comes to helping those who need assistance," said Jelich.

Spectra Energy, Union Gas' parent company, matches each individual donation dollar for dollar, and those matching dollars go to local United Ways.

"United Way is humbled by Union Gas' generosity and unwavering commitment to ensuring that everyone in our community has a chance to succeed," said Kelly Ziegner, ceo, United Way London & Middlesex. "Thank you so much for making a real difference in our community. You helped change over 85,000 lives through the more than 80 programs and services funded by United Way.  It is with deepest gratitude that we thank Union Gas for believing in possibility. Together we build resilient individuals and families."

Funds will go to support United Way London Middlesex agencies and programs that address the needs of communities they service with the mission to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
