Western campus members are being challenged to ask themselves – what would happen in our community if we doubled the number of participants involved in the 2014 United Way campaign? This year’s United Way goal is being called “Project 100%” and the committee is looking to double participation, awareness and community engagement. The campaign officially kicked off on Oct. 21 with a game of United Way Jeopardy to highlight the critical importance of helping to create a community where everyone matters. More campaign facts.
When you support the United Way, your donation stays in London and Middlesex County. Your financial support is invested in programs that have the proven ability to change people's lives and helps make our community stronger, healthier and more productive.
The possibilities are limitless - get involved in your department's/faculty's United Way campaign, buy a coffee on United Way Coffee Day on November 27th or volunteer at a United Way funded agency.
