Local non-profit agencies continue to need help.
The United Way is at $138,000, or 46 per cent of its $300,000 fundraising goal.
“If the United Way does not get close to our goal, what are at risk are after-school programs, parent and tot programs and youth programs in several of our North Okanagan communities,” said Linda Yule, executive director.
“United Way also funds programs that help seniors, the disadvantaged and those with disabilities be self-reliant, as well as a no-cost prenatal nutrition program.”
Among the groups that receive support from United Way are the Enderby Family Resource Centre, the North Okanagan Therapeutic Riding Association, the People In Need Crisis Line, Vernon’s Upper Room Mission and the Falkland Boys and Girls Club.
You can donate by calling 250-549-1346 or going online to www.unitedwaynocs.com.
“It’s not too late to get involved,” said Yule.
“Your donation stays here in your community and makes lasting change in people’s lives.”
