UBC United Way

With a successful kick-off event behind them, and an amount of over $20,000 raised to date, the 2003 UBC United Way Campaign is well underway.

“Pledge packages were delivered in late September, and donors have already been generous through their donations and event participation,” said Deborah Austin, one of this year’s co-chairs. “One of our goals this year is to raise donor participation and with the improvements we’re seeing already, I believe we will achieve that.”

“Volunteers have really been working hard on campaigns throughout departments on campus,” noted Eilis Courtney, Austin’s co-chair. “If you’re looking for a coffee and donut morning, an international food fair or a 50/50 draw, you can find one in an area near you.”

Upcoming events this month include the annual Health Sciences Pancake Breakfast, the Land and Building Services International Food Festival and the UBC-Ritsumeikan Open House. Visit our website at www.unitedway.ubc.ca for all of our campaign and event details.

For more information on this year’s campaign, upcoming events, or how to donate, please contact Liz King, Campaign Coordinator, at 604.822.8929 or united.way@ubc.ca.
