Tuesday, September 29 signaled the launch of the University of Waterloo’s 2015 United Way workplace campaign. An annual tradition, students, staff and faculty supported the initiative by wearing red and decorating their workplaces to celebrate the wellbeing of our community.
This year, our fundraising goal is $260,000, and will include funds raised through individual donations, campus events, and various activities led by departments and groups at UWaterloo.
Our workplace campaign is just one of the many ways that Waterloo gives back to the Kitchener-Waterloo community. Collections from our campaign go directly to the United Way of Kitchener Waterloo & Area to support local organizations that are working to improve access to mental health and wellness support services, while expanding our community’s awareness of these issues. Additionally, our donations help to support local initiatives providing programming that breaks down gender barriers, empowering women on a path to equity.
