Donations

CUPE Local 791 takes pride in the community we live in and we try to look out for each other.

In January 2018 CUPE 791 membership decided to start giving back to our community and voted to begin donating $1000 to a charity or cause every single month. As of March 2022 we have donated over $66000 to various charities and causes. We challenge all our local unions to give back and if you can help others in need.
