United Way campaign ends six per cent short of goal

United Way of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry has reached 94 per cent of its $707,070 goal for the 2014 Annual Campaign. 

The campaign was extended until January 9, 2015, with donations continuing to come in since that time bringing the total to 94 per cent. 

“The generosity of our community is helping us to look after our neighbours and friends”, said Nolan Quinn, 2014 Campaign Chair. 

“The support is overwhelming and it’s obvious we take of each other in SDG. We are truly grateful and thank all of our contributors”. 

“On behalf of the United Way/Centraide of SD&G and our 16 funded member agencies, thank you to the kind and generous citizens of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry who have once again demonstrated the spirit of giving in support of our 2014 Community Campaign. Your kindness will go a long way towards providing much needed assistance to people living in SDG”, said Danny Aikman, Board President. 

“Thank you to Nolan Quinn and Luc Lacelle for leading the Campaign once again this year. Your leadership and dedication was inspirational to the Campaign Team and all the volunteers who helped you along the way. Special thanks to Lori Greer who has quickly demonstrated her commitment to bettering the lives of all the people United Way/Centraide touches. The future is bright for the United Way/Centraide of SD&G and the Board of Directors looks forward to even greater successes in 2015”.

“We would like to thank our community for their tremendous generosity”, said Lori Greer, Executive Director of United Way. “We have received just over $664,000 of support – we definitely have reason to celebrate this result. We will be creative to do our best to maintain the same level of funding to our agencies and continue to help people here at home.”

The United Way of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry is governed by a local Board of Directors, who, with United Way staff and volunteers help to raise funds that assist 16 agencies (19 programs) throughout Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. 

Its mission is to improve lives by working together with priorities focused on moving people from poverty to possibility, healthy people, strong communities and all that kids can be.
