Union Gas Employees are continuing to provide outstanding support to Chatham Goodfellows:
The Union Gas Blue Flame Club has been involved with Chatham Goodfellows as far back as 1975. During the early years, bins were placed in the lobby at head office and employees donated food and toy items. For every pound of food collected the Sales and Marketing department donated $1.00 through their “Care-A-Ton” program.
Union Gas employees developed and maintain partnerships with Heinz Food, Kraft in Dresden and the Bulk Barn to fund raise, purchase food and deliver food each year. Employees use unique fund raising events, such as jersey days, pizza days, bake sales, raffles, breakfasts, lunches, glass turkeys, gift baskets, golf packages and hot turkey lunches, and Halloween Spooktacular to raise cash, food and toys for Chatham Goodfellows. Union Gas employee have donated thousands of hours of sweat equity, and over $500,000 in toys, food and cash to Chatham Goodfellows.
Today Union Gas staff continued their legacy of giving. They held their annual jersey day fund raiser for Chatham Goodfellows. At this point in Union Gas staff have raised in excess of $13,000 for Chatham Goodfellows, and their fund raising efforts are efforts are continuing. Last year Union Gas staff raised $27,000 for Chatham Goodfellows.
