United Way kicks off

Will fund nine critically-needed Campbell River programs delivered by eight Community Partners

United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) launched a new twist on their annual fundraising campaign by challenging the community to become Agents of Change at a Kick Off event held at the Maritime Heritage Museum.

UWCNVI staff, volunteers and workplace and individual donors kicked off the campaign to raise $90,000 that will fund nine critically-needed Campbell River programs delivered by eight Community Partners.

“Everywhere you look there are people who are in need of a helping hand. By giving to United Way you can help thousands in our community,” said James Forsyth, Board Member, UWCNVI.

Donations can be made by contacting the UWCNVI office at 250- 287-3213 or info@uwcnvi.ca or through Canada Helps at www.uwcnvi.ca
