Union donations boost charities

City of Terrace members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2012 gives out annual donations

A LOCAL union helped out two charities with generous donations during the holiday season.

City of Terrace members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2012 made an annual donation to the Dr. REM Lee Hospital Foundation of $2,000.

The foundation, a volunteer organization, was created in 1988 to raise money in support of Mills Memorial Hospital and Terraceview Lodge.

By enhancing the scope and quality of medical and health care services available, the health needs of residents and of the neighbouring areas can be addressed locally and eliminate costly referrals to larger centres.

Donations go toward upgrading existing equipment, introducing new technology, improving the ease and efficiency of patient care, and increasing the ability to attract health care professionals.

And CUPE local 2012 members also gave a cheque for $2,000 to the Terrace Churches Food Bank, founded in 1990, which serves about 500 families per month for a total of 1,500 people.

It operates solely with volunteer help and has about 125 volunteers who put in more than 325 hours per month.

Rent is donated and all funds received go directly to helping people, serving the communities of Terrace, Thornhill, Lakelse Lake, Old and New Remo and Rosswood.

The Terrace Churches Food Bank is a member of Food Banks Canada.
