President's Message to all Atlantic Packaging Employees:
We all are aware of the crisis in Ukraine, and my heart goes out to the Ukrainian nationals and all those affected by this unfolding tragedy.
We are witnessing the sorrowful situation of families torn apart, people leaving their own country and valiant citizens fighting for safeguarding their nation. The war has prompted a massive outpouring of support worldwide and has united to help in every manner possible.
Ukrainian immigrants and their descendants have left a profound mark on the development of Ontario and Western Canada. They have made and continue to make remarkable contributions to Canada in the field of culture, the economy, politics and sports. Today, we at Atlantic believe it is our humanitarian and moral responsibility to come together and support the community in their hour of need. Our goal is to do fundraising to eventually help Ukrainian refugees who are forced to flee their homes following the Feb 24th invasion of their country. Through this "gofundme" platform, we are associated with "Canada Ukraine Foundation," a certified charity organization that will use our funds for the cause.
Atlantic Packaging will match the sum of all the donations from our employees across the group. We will utilize the funds to support humanitarian efforts in providing aid and relief to the displaced Ukraine nationals. We are targeting to raise $25,000 in 45 days and urge you all to support this cause and once again prove that we do care as one family.
We will continue this communication with you to keep you updated on the situation as well as the progress we made in our fundraising efforts towards this cause.
We appreciate collaboration at Atlantic, and hope many of you who are reading this will find it motivating to support the community that has shaped Canada, its economy and society. It's now the right time for us to respond and give back.
