Centraide Duplessis Receives a Record Donation from ArcelorMittal and its Fermont and Port-Cartier Employees
Port-Cartier, April 26, 2022 – ArcelorMittal Mines and Infrastructure Canada and its employees, along with the United Steelworkers and its five local unions, are once again demonstrating their strong roots in their communities. Their solidarity, commitment and generosity have made it possible to donate a record amount of $271,728 to Centraide Duplessis this year.
“Poverty and social exclusion never take a pause, and community organizations work tirelessly to support the daily lives of those who are less fortunate. I’m extremely proud that, with our employees, we can help Centraide Duplessis to better meet the growing needs of the entire region. Being part of the North Shore community means not only living and working here, but also caring about others and being sensitive to them. We sincerely thank all our employees and the team who collected the donations. They did an extraordinary job,” said Mapi Mobwano, President and CEO of ArcelorMittal Mining Canada.
“For us, giving back to organizations on the North Shore is part of our DNA. The mere fact of giving a record amount of money this year is a testament to our members’ attachment to and solidarity with the region. Centraide Duplessis contributes to improving the quality of life of our fellow citizens, and the response of our members and ArcelorMittal illustrates our gratitude and confidence in Centraide,” said Marc Duchaine, United Steelworkers union representative for the North Shore, Lower St. Lawrence, Gaspé and Magdalen Islands.
