Our 2015 United Way Campaign has begun!

Our 2015 United Way Campaign has begun! 

We would like to thank you for giving – whether it is your time, your dollars, or your spirit – thank you! It feels great to give and it definitely helps others.

This year’s United Way campaign motto is “THE POWER Of YOU”  You can make a pledge, donate as a leader, participate in an event, and have fun with your colleagues during the campaign.

Our kick-off event will be Wednesday, Oct 7, 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. on the Quarterdeck. Join us for some inspiring words from our President, Allan Cahoon and our United Way guest speakers – Carmel Chamberlain, and Cliff LeQuesne. Tea/coffee and treats will be served. 

This year, you will be able to purchase tickets for the Duck Race, Flight Over Victoria and a newly added event this year – PE&R Barbeque which will take place the day after the kick off – Thursday, Oct 8, at noon.  More details to follow.

Stop by the tables promoting future events – the ever popular Book n’ Bake sale, the on-line auction, and another new event – Kids’ Swap N Shop.  More details to follow on these events as well.  Win a prize at the spinning wheel

There are three priority areas for the 2015 campaign: 

  1. Supporting children and youth with opportunities.
  2. Moving people from poverty to possibility.
  3. Developing the capacity of people to care for themselves and their families.

Your Royal Roads United Way team will be holding several “thank you for giving” draws throughout the campaign! The first draw at the kick off will be a thank you for giving to the 2014 campaign – if you completed a pledge form in 2014, your name will be entered in this draw.  The second draw, also at the kick off, will be for those who have completed a pledge form or made an e-pledge on or before the kick off.  There will also be surprise draws throughout the campaign for the weekly Thank You For Giving gifts such as a year’s parking pass or a day off with pay.

If you didn’t receive a pledge form, or have questions about making a pledge, send an email message to unitedway@royalroads.ca or call Cindy Goodman at 2551. 

There will be lots of fun during our campaign, so please check the website at http://unitedway.royalroads.ca for more details, or email us at unitedway@royalroads.ca.

Once again, thank you, for all that you do and for all that you give! See you at the kick off, October 7, 2015.  Come out and make some noise!
