Steelworkers’ Generosity Earns National Recognition

The generosity and community spirit of United Steelworkers union members across the country have earned them national recognition from United Way Canada.

USW members, who donated and raised more than $1 million for United Way initiatives in 2020, have been recognized with the organization’s Thanks a Million award.

“Please extend our gratitude to USW’s members,” Dan Clement, United Way President and CEO, states in a letter to USW National Director Ken Neumann, announcing the award.

“In these unprecedented times, your support has been critical to the well-being of Canadians. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be felt right across the country, with many facing unparalleled uncertainty. Your continued support has been vital in ensuring we are able to support our most vulnerable citizens throughout the pandemic,” the letter states.

“Through your collective action and generosity, we are able to make investments in local programs and community agencies that create lasting change by addressing the root causes of social issues like mental illness, social isolation, poverty, hunger and domestic violence.”

United Way/Centraide Canada is a network of 71 non-profit organizations that fund and support local initiatives in more than 5,000 communities across the country
