Dear Mr. Laporte,

I am honoured to grant Teamsters Canada and its members the “2017 Thanks a Million” award for raising over $1 million in support of the community work carried out by Centraide/United Way. Every year, this award is bestowed upon the country’s leading corporations and labour organizations on behalf of all Centraide/United Way Canada’s offices.

Please convey my heartfelt gratitude to the members of Teamsters Canada. Your collective contributions help us improve the lives of our fellow Canadians at the local level and make our communities better places to live for all.

A Centraide/United Way representative from your area will contact you to celebrate this remarkable feat. We will gladly highlight your generous support on the national website of Centraide/United Way (centraide.ca), as of June 25, 2018.

It is important to make other Canadians aware of the commitment shown by your organization and its members to build community. Your outstanding generosity sets a wonderful example and allows us to continue promoting charitable investments in our great country.

Thank you again for your unfailing support. We appreciate your confidence in our ability to make positive, lasting changes. When all we work together, anything is possible.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Jacline Nyman
President and CEO
