Union Plus vice president Jill Cashen has achieved "Mission Maker" status at the Community Services Agency after raising $5,500 in CSA’s new Board Member Challenge. CSA’s Fundraising Committee launched the Challenge earlier this year to help CSA cover general operating costs. Although the agency has been successful at securing grants for its various projects, "It’s really tough to get grant funding for general operating costs,” said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. Cashen was the first board member to achieve the “Mission Maker” status. “CSA is doing vital work to support local workers and we are grateful to be a part of the effort,” said Cashen. “Union Plus is proud to give back to members across the country with our hardship grants, mortgage assistance and educational resources.” Union Plus president Mitch Stevens added that "The Union Plus team works hard to provide a safety net for union members and their families. We’re proud to partner with the Community Services Agency as it provides needed resources for members facing economic stress from the pandemic."
