Members of CUPE Manitoba presented a $50,000 cheque to CancerCare Manitoba on Saturday.
The union made the contribution as part of ongoing fundraising for Manitoba children who have cancer.
“We started fundraising among our members in the 1990s when we adopted pediatric oncology as our ongoing charity”, CUPE Manitoba president Kelly Moist said. “CUPE’s commitment to our community is strong, and we are proud to donate to such an important cause as supporting children in need.”
This year’s contribution of $50,000 is the largest single donation made, and coincides with CUPE’s 50th anniversary this year.
