ATU Local 113 Sisters and Brothers live in the communities they serve. Their hard work continued September 1, when the Local joined together with the Parkdale Peace Project for their second annual Back to School Parkdale block party in support of children and families.

It was a day of family friendly activities, starting with a BBQ as 204 backpacks filled with supplies were given away right as the new school year began. Children were also given free haircuts and stylings.

Parkdale—High Park NDP candidate Paul Taylor was one of many community members in attendance.

The event was a huge success and brought joy to the many children and families that live in this community. Thank you to all those who helped plan this event – and to the Women’s Committee for their leadership.
