"At Union Gas, we're proud to support the great work that United Way does in this community," said Steven Jelich, district manager London/Sarnia, Union Gas. "We share a similar commitment and we work hard to be good neighbours in more than 400 communities we serve across Ontario."
The company's United Way theme, "We Give Today, To Improve Tomorrow," reflects the heart of the campaign, and it also reflects employees' spirit of giving. Numerous fundraising events led by employees were held throughout the year to raise money. Union Gas matches each individual employee and retiree donation dollar for dollar, and those matching dollars will go to each local United Way.
"Thank you to Union Gas for their ongoing support to our community and for being proud to be part of the solution," said Kelly Zeigner, ceo, United Way Elgin Middlesex. "With these investments, they are helping to change our community. They are helping to change the odds for many who need it. Union Gas is dedicated to working together to build a stronger community which improves lives locally!"
Funds will go to support United Way Elgin Middlesex agencies and programs that help to build a community where vulnerable young people, hard-working families and seniors have enough to eat, a place to call home and safe neighbourhoods. Donations provide a strong, healthier, more prosperous place to live and work and that helps communities flourish economically, socially and creatively.
