From May 9th – 27th Unifor Local 199’s Women’s Committee held a period product drive in support of United Way’s Period Promise Campaign. Donations were brought to United Way’s product drop off at the Seaway Mall in Welland this past Friday May 27th.
This year, Unifor Local 199 collected approximately 80 boxes of products! On top of that, 199 members, salaried workers and contractors from GM collected another nearly 200 boxes of product at the plant!
All collected products will distributed to local organizations from across the region to help address the fact that every year thousands of people have to choose between safe menstrual products or other basic necessities.
A big THANK YOU to all who donated to this very important campaign! These products will make a big impact on the lives of the most vulnerable in our community.
