TORONTO, Dec. 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Enbridge Gas employees and retirees today reaffirmed their passionate support for the communities in which they live and work, by raising a total of $2,294,491 for United Ways across Ontario in 2019.
"Our employees and retirees put their heart and soul into this year's campaign to raise funds for United Way, knowing the work they do strengthens the communities in which we live and work by supporting hundreds of valuable programs at the grassroots level," said Jim Sanders, Senior Vice President of Operations for Enbridge Gas Inc., and executive sponsor of the company's 2019 United Way campaign.
The company's 2019 United Way theme "Join the Enbridge Uprising of Care," reflects the heart of the campaign and it captures employees and retirees' spirit of giving and volunteerism. Numerous fundraising events led by employees were held throughout the year to raise money. In addition, Enbridge matches individual donations dollar for dollar, and the matching dollars go to each local United Way.
Funds will go to United Way agencies across Ontario to support programs that address the local needs of the communities they serve. To learn more and find a local United Way, visit http://www.unitedway.ca or find them on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
