Donations

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

In January 2018 our membership decided to start giving back to our community and they voted to donate $1000 to a local charity every single month. As of April  2020 we have given away over $35000 to local charities, we challenge all our local unions to follow and try to help out our local communities as many locals across the country already do. We didn’t start this but we are happy to have joined in.
