Tomorrow morning the United Way is holding their annual Community Spirit Awards at St. George Banquet Hall. We are proud to say that the University of Waterloo is well-represented:
- Leadership Award - University of Waterloo
- Individual Campaign Champion Award – James Skidmore, Campaign Co-Chair, faculty member in Germanic & Slavic Studies
- Individual Impact Award - Doris Jakobsh, faculty member in Religious Studies
We have another reason to celebrate: we beat our 2016 goal for the United Way campaign! Thanks to all of you, we raised over $275,000.
It’s more important than ever to give back to the community we live and work in. As successful as our campaign was, donations for the United Way Kitchener-Waterloo and Area were down. To make an even larger impact, the United Way KW & Area is joining forces with United Way Cambridge and North Dumfries. The University looks forward to partnering with this new organization, United Way Waterloo Region Communities, when it officially launches on April 1, 2017. Through continued support, we will be able to help even more individuals and families live better lives in the three cities and four townships in the Region of Waterloo.
Thanks for your support in 2016 and we look forward to seeing you when the campus goes red in 2017!
