United Way Gift Announcement
Western's United Way Gift Annoucement took on a decidedly red and white feel this year. Using Canada's 150th as a backdrop, campus United Way volunteers announced Western's $657, 234 contribution to the United Way of London and Middlesex. Thank you to the many hundreds of volunteers and donors who help raise Western's cummulative contributions to the United Way to over $12 million.
Congratulations to all our 21 Days of November draw winners. Donations to the United Way are still being accepted as we work to reach our goal. If you haven't had a chance to donate please consider how your support could help those in need.
In addition to goals of increasing participation and awareness about the importance of the United Way - this year's campaign funds will work to help create real and lasting change in our community.
The United Way of London & Middlesex announced a goal of $9.17 million for this year's community campaign, up slightly from last year’s goal of $9.1 million.
United Way London & Middlesex announced Dr. Karima Velji, Vice President Patient Care and Quality, St. Joseph's Health Care London as its 2016 Campaign Chair.

How you can help
Thanks to students from the United Way Student Association for holding a Coffee Day photo contest. This caring team organized a draw to have students get their picture taken with their giant coffee mug for a chance to win a Hospitality Services gift card.
