Locals 175 & 633 raise $4,726 for Leukemia at Canal Day

Every year on the August long weekend, the Canal Days festival takes place in Port Colborne. For the past several years, Locals 175 & 633 staff and volunteers have donated their time over the long weekend to collect money to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). For a donation of $5 per car, visitors could park their car in the lot at Food Basics 861. In return, our volunteer parking attendants handed out ‘Leukemia Fighter’ magnets to all who donated.

“Thanks to the generous community and the amazing weather we had over the weekend, the Local Union raised an amazing $4,726,” explained Region 4 Director Sylvia Groom. “We owe a huge thanks to everyone that donated, as well as to our friends at Boggios IDA Pharmacy and to everyone at Food Basics here in Port Colborne for their support and use of their parking lot.”
