During a special presentation at FCA Canada’s headquarters today, FCA Canada announced an employee donation of $1,167,535 to the United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County 2020 campaign. This marks the largest donation in the Windsor-Essex community this year and the 34th consecutive year of FCA Canada employees and retirees donating over $1 million.

United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex is focusing on a new cradle-to-career strategy to assist those in need from the time they’re born to the time they begin a career. Local children are falling behind, and Windsor-Essex has the highest childhood poverty rate in the country. This new direction will focus efforts on improving outcomes for youth in Windsor-Essex, target priority neighbourhoods where children need the most support, and leverage the combined investment of a cross-section of community partners.

Windsor-Essex residents can also join the cause and help give back to assist those most vulnerable in our community. The public is encouraged to take part and donate generously for this year’s United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County 2020 campaign.
