Mike Van Boekel is the Plant Chair at Unifor Local 88, the GM Assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario.
Their family entered a contest this past fall where they created a video explaining what they would do with $50,000 to help their community.
They were notified on Wednesday, December 5 that their video is currently in second place out of the four finalists.
The top two contestants will get the $50,000 to help their communities.
Please take the time to help their community. Part of the project is to team up with the Oxford County Mental Health Association for programs geared towards teenage suicide prevention – the number of teenage suicides in their county have really jumped over the past three years.
The contest is almost over, if you haven’t yet, please vote! Remember, you can vote everyday until Monday, December 10!
Their video is called Hickson and shows a red fire truck on the opening scene.
