A food drive organized by administrative assistant Helene Caine from our Leamington office was a huge success!

Over the last couple of months, Helene collected donations from Members, employers, and Local Union staff and their families to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House and the local Salvation Army.

“I just want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that donated, assisted and helped complete our 1st Annual Holiday Food Drive.” Said Helene “With your kindness and support, 3000 plus items were picked up and delivered to families for this holiday season”.

Each time that someone donated 5 items they were asked to fill out an entry for a $100.00 gift certificate donated by Cavendish Appetizers .

We are pleased to announce the winner of the gift certificate was Ashley Wallen (pictured below).

A warm thank you for their generosity goes to the Members and management at:

  • Cavendish Appetizers
  • Milo-Fais
  • Highbury Canco
  • Metro
  • Loblaw
  • The Employment Assessment Centre

A story was also published in the Leamington Southpoint Sun and you can read it here:

Thank you, Helene, for all the hard work! None of this would have been possible without you and thanks to you others who are less fortunate will get to enjoy the holiday season as well.
