Over $1.6 Million Raised at Enbridge Gas for United Way to Strengthen Local Communities

TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2020 /CNW/ - Enbridge Gas employees and retirees, supported by the company's matching donation program, have once again demonstrated their tradition of giving by raising over $1,603,689 for United Ways across our service area in 2020.

"This year, many people are facing unprecedented needs due to the Covid-19 pandemic," said Jim Sanders, Senior Vice President of Operations for Enbridge Gas Inc., and executive sponsor of the company's 2020 United Way campaign. "I'm proud of our employees and retirees for their generous contributions to United Way, whose support for vital local community programs helps those most vulnerable and keeps our communities strong." 

The company's campaign, which was themed 'Show Your Local Love', involved many creative virtual fundraising events led by a group of dedicated employee volunteers. In addition, Enbridge matches employee and retiree donations dollar for dollar. 

The funds will be distributed to United Way agencies across Ontario and Quebec to support programs that address the local needs of the communities they serve.
