Local 128 Donates $1,000 to Our Children, Our Future

Boilermakers Local 128 has donated $1,000 to Our Children, Our Future, a local not-for-profit charitable organization committed to securing a better future for children and their families within the district of Sudbury/Manitoulin. The donation will go directly to the Healthy Food for Kids Program, an initiative dedicated to raising awareness and funds to provide proper nourishment, essential to feeding children’s bodies and minds. Many of the programs at Our Children, Our Future seek to alleviate some of the stress that food insecurity places on families. The organization continues to assist more local families with young children who need real help right now. To learn more about Our Children, Our Future please visit http://ocof.net.
