United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd. (UFA) is donating $60,000 for COVID-19 relief in support of services that protect the wellbeing of people in the communities UFA farmer members serve.
Of the $60,000, $19,000 is being donated by UFA delegates, on behalf of UFA with funding directed to local food banks, and other initiatives that provide required support during these unprecedented times.
“The well-being of our communities is paramount and serves as a driving force not only behind everything we are doing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also with what we support throughout the year,” says Scott Bolton, president and CEO of UFA. “We know the road ahead is long. But we continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our neighbours and it’s why we are collectively committing $60,000 in funding for immediate support of organizations providing vital services to keep our communities strong. We are proud to stand by our members and customers, just as we have for over 100 years. We are in this together. We will get through this and emerge even stronger.”
As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve in the communities where they live and work, UFA remains committed to protecting the health and safety of their members, customers and team.
In an effort to provide the best possible service from locations that remain safe and reliable, UFA has implemented a number of preventative measures.
