Steel­work­ers spread Christ­mas cheer by mak­ing a num­ber of lo­cal do­na­tions

The Aurora (Labrador City) - - Saltwire Wheels - BY MIKE POWER

A lot of peo­ple see Christ­mas as a time for giv­ing, when we give gifts to friends and fam­ily who mean a lot to us.

And there is also the el­e­ment of re­ceiv­ing as well. But as the old say­ing goes, it is more blessed to give than to re­ceive.

This re­cent Christ­mas sea­son the Steel­work­ers Union in Labrador City cer­tainly showed that giv­ing as­sis­tance to var­i­ous groups in Labrador West was a big part of their agenda.

In re­cent weeks, do­na­tions were made to the lo­cal food bank which was the re­cip­i­ent of a $400 do­na­tion.

As well, all four schools in Labrador West re­ceived a $250 do­na­tion.

The lo­cal spe­cial Olympics Group re­ceived $2,750 from the union. A do­na­tion was made to the min­is­te­rial fund of $1,400 from Lo­cal #5795, and an ad­di­tional $2,550 was given from Dis­trict 6, which is the Steel­work­ers Dis­trict the lo­cals in Labrador West are a part of. As was re­ported ear­lier in The Aurora, Lo­cal #6185, the union rep­re­sent­ing em­ploy­ees of the Towns of Wabush and Labrador City pro­vided a Christ­mas din­ner on Dec. 25 for peo­ple who were alone or who had fam­ily away for the hol­i­days. They also helped pro­vide meals to se­niors ear­lier in De­cem­ber. Those were just a few of the things the Steel­work­ers did for the com­mu­nity around Christ­mas time, but they also con­trib­ute through­out the year to food drives, and many other causes, and they say they will con­tinue to do so through­out 2019.
