COLLABORATING WITH COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE PROVINCE
It takes the collaboration of a community to raise healthy, happy and well-adjusted children. Raising a family can be costly, sometimes a family’s financial situation can make providing essentials difficult and providing additional extra-curricular activities impossible. The LiUNA Local 1611 “Empowering Youth Project” was launched in 2018 to address these issues. Our initiatives are aimed to identify areas within a community needing assistance and look at how LiUNA Local 1611 can ease the burden and ensure that all children are being afforded the opportunities to develop, learn and thrive.
HOW LIUNA IS PROMOTING LITERACY IN SCHOOLS?
Years of budget cuts to public school funding have left classrooms without new and up-to-date reading material. As part of our Empowering Youth Project, LiUNA Local 1611 has donated thousands of dollars in ‘wish list’ literature to numerous schools throughout British Columbia. Hundreds of the latest and most desired book titles around the Province as part of our initiative.
