Supporting Our Communities
Twice per year, CLAC awards donations of $1,000, $1,500, or $2,500 to local causes nominated by members. All causes and amounts are selected at random from qualified nominations. In June, Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council, nominated by Local 6 member Viktor Vangelov, who is employed by Alder Construction Ltd., won a $2,500 donation from CLAC.
“Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council is a nonprofit organization that engages individuals, families, and organizations to increase their participation in suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention,” says Viktor. “The council works to reduce suicidal behaviour and its impact on individuals, families, and communities. This donation will go a long way with helping those who are struggling in our community.”
