Clow Canada raises $4,000 for Romero House Soup Kitchen
January 7, 2019
Clow Canada has been a strong supporter over the years of the Romero House Soup Kitchen and that support continued in 2018. Clow Canada staff and members of Local 835 IAM raised $2,000 and Clow matched dollar for dollar the amount raised for a total donation of $4,000. Money was raised throughout the year through donations from employees and selling recyclable bottles, cans and scrap wood. We are proud to report that over the past 8 years Clow Canada has donated $27,000.
The entire team at the Saint John plant came together throughout the year to make generous donations and came up with creative ways to raise money for the Romero House. Unfortunately, Saint John has the highest child poverty rate in Canada and only strong community support can fix this problem. Romero House operates a soup kitchen that gives out 400 meals per day, a clothing bank, emergency family assistance, outreach, chapel, health care room, life skills support and a mobile unit that travels around the city at night giving coffee and sandwiches to the homeless.
Clow Canada is committed to making the Saint John community the best it can be.
