The team at Procter & Gamble presented a cheque for $100,000 to Board Chair Tammy Sokolowski, Cabinet Member Darren Gallacher, and Executive Director Trish Buote last week. This is the final 2017 fundraising contribution to the United Way Leeds & Grenville, for a total of $200,000!
Mutazz Akour, P&G Plant Manager, was very thankful for having such a caring team: “It’s about the heart of this team”. The campaign at P&G is technician-run, and the dedicated team is all volunteer including many retirees. They contribute through payroll deduction, events, activities, and product sales.
Trish Buote remarked: “What an amazing contribution by an amazing team. There has been so much for this team to digest in 2017, and we are incredibly thankful for their continued dedication to our community. The money they have raised is critical to support people in need right here in Leeds & Grenville. I am humbled and thankful for them.”
