United Way officials are thrilled to share the success of the recent workplace campaign at DAJCOR Aluminum in Chatham.

“In 2014, our company donated $1,800 to the campaign. We knew that we could do much better and we are pleased to report this year the employees and company combined to donate over $10,000 – that is an over 500% increase!” reported Wayne Cowell, Human Resources Manager at DAJCOR.

“We are so grateful for the support we have received from everyone at DAJCOR,” said Tom Slager, Acting Director of Resource Development at United Way. “This amazing gift will be put to good use within Chatham-Kent and will benefit many, many people.”

The 2015 United Way Campaign has achieved $1,090,813 of its $2,015,000 goal to date. Funds are allocated to support over 40 agencies, programs and services throughout Chatham-Kent.
