Campaign benefits local agency efforts

United Way 50th campaign raises funds for 27 agencies throughout North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap

United Way is in the midst of its 50th campaign to raise funds for local programs for children, families, seniors and those with disabilities.

Twenty-seven agencies throughout our region count on the support of United Way.

“Individuals, employee groups and companies can all come together to help United Way reach our goal of $300,000 to help kids be all that they can be, move people from poverty to possibility and work toward healthy people in strong communities,” said Linda Yule, executive director.

“One in three people will be touched by the services your United Way funds. Your donation stays here at home, where it matters to you.”
