United Way campaign needs your support

Sophia Palahicky

Our Royal Roads United Way campaign formally launched on October 9, 2019 and we had one of the most successful kick-off events ever, raising over $30,000 at this opening event. Thank you to all who attended the kick-off and contributed to the campaign thus far. Keep an eye out for our upcoming events and activities.

Considering this phenomenal accomplishment, it is so important that we remember the work is very much underway and we need your support. Each one of us can make a little difference but together we can make a massive difference in the lives of the people in front of us and right next to us.

We have all witnessed real stories and events that reveal our friends, neighbors and families face social isolation, domestic violence, poverty, homelessness and mental health issues. I struggle with feelings of powerlessness to make change. However, campaigns like this make me hopeful.

While we are not striving for perfection, we aspire to make a positive difference in the lives of more than 80,000 people living in our communities. We need your help. I encourage you to make your donation today.
