The Carpenters’ District Council of Ontario (CDCO) has contributed $1 million to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
The hospital thanked the union for its support.
“We are proud to be the hospital caring for the most seriously ill children in Ontario and their families, and are so grateful to have the Carpenters join us in being all-in to build a new SickKids,” said Ted Gerrard, chief executive officer of the SikKids Foundation.
“Carpenters are an important partner in bringing our vision one step closer to reality,” he said in a statement.
Mike Yorke, president of Carpenters Local 27, said: “The Carpenters of Ontario are proud to partner with such a caring and life-impacting organization.”
