IUPAT District Council 38 heard about the theft of Teen gifts and gift cards from the Surrey Christmas Bureau and wanted to help.
On behalf of DC38 and FTI BC, Local 163 Rep Kevin Weston dropped off a cheque this morning for $500 to help make Christmas merry and bright for local families. The Surrey Christmas Bureau was very happy to accept the donation and said that Unions are always supportive of them and the community.
DC38 would like to congratulate Trevor Funk, son of Local
138 member Keith Hand, on receiving the A. L. “Mike” Monroe/Ralph D.
Williams, III Sports Scholarship Award. The $5000 scholarship is awarded to accomplished
student athletes, giving them the opportunity to pursue their athletic
ambitions while earning an advanced educational degree at the academic
institution of their choosing.
Trevor has been playing Lacrosse since he was 4, and his skill and determination were frequently recognized and sought out. In 2017, he was selected for Team BC and played in both the Nationals in Toronto, Ontario and the North American Indigenous Games. Trevor was drafted 8th overall in the 2018 BC Jr draft to Coquitlam where he played for the Coquitlam Jr A team, and most recently was invited to tryout for Canada’s National Jr Tier 1 team.
Through his hard work and dedication, Trevor is well on his
way to realizing his life-long dream of becoming a professional Lacrosse
player. Trevor has committed his life to
the pursuit of his dream and is proud to have been given the opportunity to attend
Lewis University in Illinois, where he is currently studying Criminal Justice
and playing Lacrosse for the Lewis University Flyers. Trevor plans to use the $5000 scholarship on
tuition, books, and travel costs.
On behalf of the International Union of Painters and Allied
Trades, DC38 is proud to have been able
to present Trevor with his scholarship and we wish him the best of luck on his academic
