TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2018 /CNW/ – The Steelworkers Humanity Fund is contributing $188,330 to 112 food banks and community food centres across Canada.
“The Steelworkers Humanity Fund is our union’s tool to combat poverty at the global level, but also within our own communities. This is why we are very proud to contribute to food banks and community food centres where members of the United Steelworkers live and work. Year after year, these organizations play a crucial role in assisting vulnerable individuals and families that rely on these services to make ends meet,” said Ken Neumann, President of the Steelworkers Humanity Fund and National Director of the United Steelworkers (USW).
“Members of our union make good neighbours. They are involved in their communities through volunteer work and they fundraise for different types of events and organizations for which our help is required. And with the resources pooled with the Steelworkers Humanity Fund, our support reaches food banks across the country,” said Neumann.
