IUPAT Facebook Campaign Raises Money for Children with Cerebral Palsy

August 3, 2013

“Being in a union is more than just looking out for us, we have to look out for the communities not only where we work, but where we live,” says Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) General President Kenneth Rigmaiden.

Last fall, IUPAT kicked off a campaign that would donate a dollar for each new “Like” for its foundation’s Facebook page. IUPAT’s foundation, Painters and Allied Trades for Children’s Hope (PATCH), presented a check for $10,000 to United Cerebral Palsy earlier this year.
