Port Windsor has donated 100 meals and 100 cold weather kits to the Street Help for the Homeless Centre at 964 Wyandotte Street E. Each kit contains two pairs of warm socks, gloves and a toque to help protect the homeless against harsh winter conditions.
The donation is made in the name of Port Windsor’s customers and community partners. For each person attending the recent Year-End Open House, a package and dinner was placed under the office Christmas tree.
“On Christmas Day, most of us will be warm in our homes
and surrounded by family at the dinner table.
We need to remember that there are those who will be cold,
those who will be alone and without Christmas dinner”,
Steve Salmons, President and CEO of the Windsor Port Authority.
In 2018, Port Windsor contributed more than $40,000 to a dozen community projects, ranging from the Chief Tecumseh/General Brock and Hiram Walker sculptures, Open Streets, scholarships at both the University of Windsor and St Clair College, The Arts Council of Windsor, neighbourhood clean-ups, St John’s Sandwich Food Bank, STAG, Windsor Symphony and the Mission to Seafarers.
The Windsor port is one of 18 national ports identified for their strategic contribution to the economy of Canada. The third largest port in Ontario, Port Windsor moved 5 million tonnes of product in 2018, created more than 800 direct jobs, and contributed $260 million in economic impacts locally.
