Lacombe Community Watch Association lands donation from CLAC

The $1,000 donation from CLAC comes as part of the union’s Building Communities program

Lacombe Community Watch Association Society has received a $1,000 donation from CLAC as part of the union’s Building Communities program.

The organization was nominated by Thelma Ten Hove, who is a member of the Retail, Healthcare and Service Employees Union, CLAC Local 301, and employed by the Lacombe Foundation as a Lodge attendant at the Lacombe Senior Citizens Lodge.

“Lacombe Community Watch Association (LCWA) is a collaborative group of concerned citizens with the goal of creating and maintaining safe communities for all residents in the city of Lacombe,” says Ten Hove.

“Established in 2015, LCWA is a registered non-profit, volunteer-based crime watch initiative that works in partnership with local law enforcement. CLAC’s donation will help the organization continue its work to recruit, support, and educate community members on crime prevention.”

Formed in 1952, CLAC is one of Canada’s fastest-growing unions.

Operating through 15 member centres, it is the country’s largest national, independent, multi-sector union representing over 60,000 workers in almost every sector.

Based on values of respect, dignity, and fairness, CLAC is committed to building better workplaces, better communities, and better lives.
