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 years co-chairs. One of our goals this year
is to raise donor participation and with the improvements
were seeing already, I believe we will achieve that.
Volunteers have really been working hard on campaigns
throughout departments on campus, noted Eilis Courtney,
Austins co-chair. If youre 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.

events, or how to donate, please contact Liz King, Campaign
Coordinator, at 604.822.8929 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
