ILWU Canada Backpack Campaign for Covenant House

On behalf of ILWU Canada and the Community Affairs committee, I would like to personally thank you for your Local’s generous support towards the Backpack campaign for Covenant House. Together the Locals & Affiliates raised $10,000, plus an additional $1,650 from the Employers and the backpacks in the photo were donated by Ceres and filled with Ceres swag. Due to time constraints, we opted to present a cheque this year rather than purchasing backpacks and filling them, so that Covenant House can purchase the items most needed. The ILWU Young Workers Committee made the presentation and your Local / Affiliate was acknowledged at the presentation.

In solidarity and respect.
