The Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign at 8 Wing/CFB Trenton has wrapped up for 2018. Thanks to the hard work and generous donations from base members $93,315.87 was raised since the campaign began in September.
The annual campaign, which is run by 8 Wing/CFB Trenton volunteers, began in September with the Wing Commander’s Invitational Golf Tournament. The closing ceremony was held at the Earl of Bessborough Social House on Friday, December 7.
The GCWCC is a charitable giving option developed exclusively for federal public servants and federal retirees. 8 Wing/CFB Trenton members are proud to take part in the campaign each year which gives back to the community they live and work in every day.
Through the GCWCC, public servants can support United Ways/Centraides, HealthPartners or any other registered Canadian charity of their choosing. United Way, a trusted community partner with a history of making wise investments, manages the campaign on behalf of the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.

“I am grateful for the support we had from around the base. We had a lot of original ideas this year, including an Escape Room, as well as returning favourites like the Hercules Pull. However, it is always the generosity of the individual members that make the Workplace Charitable Campaign a success.
– Major Tricia Travers, 8 Wing/CFB Trenton GCWCC Chair
“This is the community we work, live, and play in, and it is so important to give back. I want to thank all the incredible volunteers who work behind the scenes on this campaign.”
