Leduc school receives major donation from CLAC

West Haven benefits union’s Building Communities program

West Haven Public School Breakfast Program received a $1,500 donation from CLAC as part of the union’s Building Communities program.

The program was nominated by Bill Fitzsimmons, who is a member of Logistics, Manufacturing, and Allied Trades Union, CLAC Local 56, employed by OEM Remanufacturing Company Inc.

“West Haven Public School started a breakfast program that provides many children, from kindergarten to grade nine, with a nutritious meal,” says Bill. “Currently, this breakfast program is only offered once per week—but with the help of generous donations, the goal is to offer a nutritious breakfast to the students daily.”
