Lighting paper lanterns, Local 1006A members became beacons of hope in the night sky in London, Toronto and Ottawa.
Over $15,000 was raised at the three Light the Night fundraisers in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
The union’s participation was organized by 1006A's Leukemia Fundraising Coordinator Diana O’Brien.
"By participating in the walks we not only provide funding for research, we also give hope to those with the diagnosis of a blood cancer,” said O’Brien.
Since, 1985 UFCW Canada and it’s members have raised over $38 million to find a cure.
