RED LAKE, ON – Growing better futures for at-risk children is a priority for the front line staff, at the Kenora Rainy River District Child and Family Services who are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE 2332), and who are also advocates for all children and youth in the Red Lake and Ear Falls communities.
On Wednesday, October 26, 2011 CUPE 2332 will be making donations to two local initiatives that benefit area children and youth.
“While our job is to help protect at-risk children as child welfare workers we are committed to improving the lives of all children in our community,” said Don Pearson, a residential youth worker and CUPE 2332 president. Pearson said he is proud of the local union members who earmarked the donations for upgrades to municipal skateboarding park in Red Lake and for new infant swing seats in Ear Falls.
The cheque presentations are scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Ear Falls Municipal Office and 1 p.m. at the Red Lake Community Centre.
