USW Cares: Local 6717 First Involvement in Habitat for Humanity

Submitted by Brad Thompson

When Habitat for Humanity decided to build their first habitat home in Weyburn, SK., United Steelworkers Local 6717 decided to get involved. We approached the company, Nexans Canada Inc., and convinced them to match members' donations. The local also matched the same and managed to donate $9,000 to Weyburn’s first Habitat for Humanity Build.

This project is just one of so many USW's amazing members do every day to give back to our communities. If you or your local are doing good things in your community, we want to hear about them. Let us know and share video and photos at and use the #USWCares hashtag when you post your stories on social media. Don't forget to shout out @Steelworkers!
