Dear United Way volunteers,
Over the last year, you have volunteered your time, invested your resources and raised your voice for our cause in Greater Victoria.
Thanks to your support more children are preparing to enter kindergarten ready to learn, more young people are graduating high school ready for post secondary or the workforce, more adults are advancing their employment and financial stability, more seniors are living independently and our community safety net is stronger.
Because it takes everyone collaborating to change social conditions, United Way works to build partnerships that mobilize communities, agencies, funders and other sectors to find solutions. We unite governments, the private sector, labour, donors and volunteers to make a difference.
We are honoured to work with so many inspiring volunteers – in particular our Board of Directors, Campaign Cabinet, Major Gifts Cabinet, Leaders and labour committees as well as our United Now and Youth Now Councils. Your leadership and dedication delivered a strong campaign result in 2014 – together we raised $5.7 Million.
Happy National Volunteer Week – your work is appreciated and we thank you!
