United Way’s annual community fund needs help

The Annual Community Fund campaign for United Way of North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap is at 30 per cent of their $300,000 goal

With three weeks to go, the Annual Community Fund campaign for United Way of North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap is at 30 per cent of the $300,000 goal needed to support the 28 local agencies that depend on United Way funding. Eleven of these agencies provide services to the people of the Shuswap.

“There are a lot of results from our employee payroll donations that we just don’t have the totals for yet.” said Linda Yule, of United Way. “However the individuals who normally drop a cheque in to us are only at 50 per cent of what we normally see come in. Another option is to call us at 1-866-448-3489 to donate by credit card or go directly to our website www.unitedwaynocs.com to donate on line. What is raised here stays here and makes a genuine difference to children, families, seniors and those with challenges here in your community.”
