January 10, 2019 – Calgary, AB – For UFCW Local 401 members, December 2018 was a time of action and generosity. From the gathering of clothing, presents, food, and other charitable donations to the hosting of holiday movie nights and Christmas parties for kids, UFCW Local 401 members participated in over a dozen holiday-related initiatives across the province through their union community.
“The holiday season is an important time of year, a time for family, and a time for pause and reflection,” said UFCW Local 401 President, Douglas O’Halloran. “We are so pleased that so many of our members have found their union to be a place where they can engage their communities and express their spirit of togetherness and generosity.”
Here, we share just some of the initiatives in which UFCW Local 401 members participated over the holiday season in 2018 (photos below).
In numerous small actions, to each other and in their workplaces and communities, UFCW Local 401 members make a difference every single day. Many of those actions aren’t as visible as they are in December, but they do make a difference.
Thank you to all UFCW Local 401 members who planned, promoted, and put together all of these fun and important holiday events and initiatives. And thank you to all UFCW Local 401 members who make a difference throughout the year, through your many acts of generosity and solidarity. You make a difference!
May your activism flourish in 2019!
