WHAT: The Downtown Mission is getting a much needed boost from CUPE Local 27.

WHO: CUPE Local 27 strives to be an active partner in the community and donates to breakfast programs, school teams, local community sports teams, and various other charities.

CUPE Local 27 is a union of 288 members which represents custodians, building maintenance, preventative maintenance, courier drivers, and a locksmith.
