CUPE Local 27 Donates
Major Gift to Downtown Mission
Former volunteer Donna Patterson knows Windsor’s downtown homeless community well from the years she’s spent serving them meals at the Downtown Mission.
Patterson was in attendance Friday when union members from CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees) Local 27 presented the Downtown Mission of Windsor with a cheque for $25,000 — the union’s largest donation to date. It’s one that the mission’s staff and volunteers said will help accommodate the needs of the growing community that they support.
