Union Gas Donates $5K To United Way Of CK

Union Gas has donated $5,000 to the United Way of Chatham-Kent to support its annual campaign.

According to a news release, the donation is a result of Union Gas’ multi-million dollar powerhouse construction project at its head office that is currently ongoing and has temporarily displaced some parking spaces.

The release states that Brad-Lea Meadows is helping to provide overflow parking at Thames-Lea Plaza.  As a form of compensation, Union Gas has made a donation to the United Way Endowment Fund, which is managed by the Chatham-Kent Community Foundation and founded by the Bradley Family.

“At Union Gas we are proud of being active members in the communities we serve and working with our community partners to help improve the lives of individuals and families,” says Corporate Real Estate Services Manager Darryl Stokes. “We are very pleased to donate to the United Way Endowment Fund on behalf of Brad-Lea Meadows, to assist with the ongoing efforts of the Chatham-Kent Community Foundation managed fund.”

United Way of Chatham-Kent CEO Karen Kirkwood-Whyte thanks Union Gas for the generous donation.

“I would like to say thank you to Union Gas and Brad-Lea Meadows for this funding, which will ensure the Endowment Fund will continue to deliver on its mandate of improving lives and building community in Chatham-Kent”, says Kirkwood-Whyte . “From our volunteers, program providers, service recipients and staff … thank you.”

Interest collected annually on the donation to the United Way’s Endowment Fund will be contributed to the annual United Way campaign.
