United Way upgrades web

A newly updated website is now online at www.unitedwaynocs.com, just in time for the annual community fund campaign.

United Way has freshened up its online appearance to make it easier for residents to support the parent agency of numerous community groups and services.

A newly updated website is now online at www.unitedwaynocs.com, just in time for the annual community fund campaign.

“A group of marketing students from Okanagan College analyzed what we had and recommended a major update,” said June Kerr, Shell Canada retiree and United Way board president.

“It was time for us to refresh our website to better reflect the United Way brand image and with the help of Tag Design here in Vernon, we have a fresh new, user-friendly website with much more relevant information and it is easy for staff to update.”

The goal of this year’s fundraising campaign is $300,000.
