Groups unite for common goal

The United Way’s annual fundraising campaign is at $140,300 of its $250,000 goal.

The United Way continues to look for community support.

With the end of 2014 drawing closer, the United Way’s annual fundraising campaign is at $140,300 of its $250,000 goal.

“We do still have some workplaces to report in and individual donors are at about 84 per cent of normal,” said Linda Yule, executive director.

“Each of the programs we support is working towards helping kids of all ages be all that they can be, moving people from poverty to possibility and helping people to be healthy and our communities to be strong. None of this happens in isolation, we look for groups that are working collaboratively and ensure our donors dollars are being invested wisely.”

United Way supports more than 20 community programs for children, youth, families, seniors and those with disabilities.
