The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) and the Painters and Allied Trades for Children’s Hope Foundation (PATCH) recently announced their launch of a new campaign to benefit United Cerebral Palsy. It will also benefit their My Child Without Limits community.
For every new “like” that they get on the Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/PATCHfoundation they will donate $1 to UCP, with a max donation of $10,000.
As Ken Rigmaiden, the executive general vice president of the IUPAT said, “Our members not only aspire to be good workers and good employees, but great community partners as well. We believe that being in a union is more than just looking out for ourselves, we have to look out for the communities where we work, and where we live.”
As Michael Hill, the senior vice president of External Affairs for UCP agreed, “The world gets changed when a group of individuals come together and decide that they’re going to do something greater than themselves. If we had more organizations like PATCH in the world, what would take us 10 or 20 years to accomplish, could be accomplished in days. We’re so grateful that PATCH and United Cerebral Palsy found one another.”
