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.
"A very heartfelt thank you to Union Gas and all area employees for their participation in the United Way of Thunder Bays' 2017 employee giving campaign. We are overwhelmed with joy to hear of the success of this year's employee campaign and appreciate all of the volunteers and participants who gave generously to our cause," said Jodie Wilson, campaign director, United Way Thunder Bay.

You should be very proud of the community support you are demonstrating collectively as Union Gas Employees. Your donations are not only changing lives, they are saving lives."
Funds will go to support United Way Thunder Bay 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.
