United Way officials would like to make a correction with regard to one of its special sponsors for “Operation Cover-Up”. The Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services were listed as a contributing sponsor. For the past 20 years, the Chatham-Kent Professional Fire Fighters Association has been a co-sponsor of this great program. It is important for the general public to know that the used winter coats are picked up – off-hours – by Association Volunteers – not during the hours they are employed by the Chatham-Kent Fire Service.
United Way expresses its regret for this error and wishes to acknowledge – and thank – the members of the Chatham-Kent Professional Fire Fighters Association for their ongoing gifts of time and talent to this worthwhile community building project.
