Union Gas Gives Back
UNION GAS GIVES BACK TO BURLINGTON & GREATER HAMILTON THOUGH RECORD-BREAKING UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN
An annual employee fundraising campaign at Union Gas has raised more than $25,455, the largest donation to United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton in the company’s 100-year history.
“I continue to be inspired by the enthusiasm and generosity that Union Gas employees and retirees demonstrate year after year during our United Way fundraising campaign,” said Keith Boulton, Union Gas district manager for Hamilton/Halton. “We’re proud of our longstanding history with Burlington and Hamilton and I can’t think of a better way to express our thanks than by being able to provide this record-breaking gift to United Way.”
The Union Gas campaign is led by a dedicated and enthusiastic group of volunteers and all individual employee and retiree donations made during this campaign are matched dollar for dollar by Union Gas’ parent company, Spectra Energy – doubling the community benefit.
“United Way’s across our country are extremely grateful to our corporate and workplace partners, like Union Gas, who are the backbone of our annual fundraising campaign. The results for Burlington and Hamilton will go a long way to improve the lives of so many of our community’s most vulnerable citizens,” said Len Lifchus, CEO of United Way Burlington & Greater Hamilton. “On behalf of children, families and seniors who will benefit from your generosity we want to thank Union Gas and their employees for investing in our community through the United Way. Change starts here because of you.”
