Clow Canada Donates $4,000 to Romero House Soup Kitchen in Saint John

Clow Canada staff and members of Local 835 IAM recently raised $2,000 for the Romero House Soup Kitchen and Clow Canada matched that amount for a total donation of $4,000. Money was raised all year through donations from team members and selling recyclable bottles, cans and scrap wood. Over the past 7 years, Clow Canada has donated $23,000 to Romero House.

The entire team at the Saint John plant continue to be committed to the Saint John community and came together throughout the year to make generous donations and came up with creative ways to raise money for Romero House. Unfortunately, Saint John has the highest child poverty rate in Canada and only strong community support can fix this problem. Romero House operates a soup kitchen giving out 400 meals per day, a clothing bank, emergency family assistance, outreach, chapel, health care room, life skills support and a mobile unit that travels around the city at night giving coffee and sandwiches to the homeless.
