Brockville – Procter & Gamble (P&G) employees presented a cheque in the amount of $60,000 to United Way Leeds & Grenville. Money was collected through sales & auctions to employees and partners and will go towards the United Way’s 2021 fundraising campaign.
“We are extremely thankful for all that P&G has done and continues to do for our community” said Trish Buote, Executive Director, United Way Leeds & Grenville.
The United Way P&G Committee, is a small but mighty group of employees and retirees who work together to coordinate events and activities, raising funds to help the community. P&G will always be a part of our community. It’s rich history of helping the communities, in which its employees live and work, has been critical in support in the reduction of key issues affecting the most vulnerable.
“P& G has always been a strong supporter of United Way and our mission. We are extremely grateful to them for their generosity and their commitment to making a difference in our community,” said Buote. “This substantial donation from Procter & Gamble will significantly enhance our ability to reach more individuals and families across Leeds & Grenville, especially at this time.
