March 8, 2018 — Alectra Utilities recently presented United Way with a cheque for $385,180.50 in support of the communities the utility serves in Hamilton, Simcoe County, St. Catharines, Peel and York regions.

The announcement was made at Alectra’s head office as part of an official cheque presentation involving several company officials.
The cheque was presented to Raj Chandegra, manager resource development, United Way Peel Region; Ciaran McGeown, manager, corporate donor relations, United Way Toronto & York Region; Mary Thomas, director strategic development, United Way Simcoe County, and several other members of United Way.
