Even after serving more than 150 bowls of soup in DC on October 18 and serving several volleyballs at the Women’s Volleyball Home Opener on Friday, October 27, the University of Waterloo’s United Way campaign is still accepting donations.
We’re at 75 percent of our $270,000 goal and we’re sure that with your support we’ll hit that goal. We make it as easy as possible to change the power of poverty in Waterloo Region with our e-Pledge site. Don’t forget you can make a payroll contribution, or make a donation via credit card, cheque or cash donation. (If you need instructions, review how to use the new online giving tool.)
Here’s what we know so far while we’ve been working towards our $270,000 goal. We know that departments across campus have baked a lot of goods, bbq’ed some Oktoberfest sausages and buzzed their hair - all in support of the United Way Campaign.
Still wondering why you should donate? The United Way Waterloo Region Communities supports local agencies that are working to change the power of poverty across our region – everything from helping a family handle their stresses to giving a student the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty. When we work together to build a stronger community, we all benefit.
Whether you’ve already made a donation, or are thinking of making a donation, we sincerely thank you. (And if you’re looking to rock out, head to the Bomber November 18 for UW Rocks for UW!)
