UBC United Way Campaign Update

As the 2004 UBC United Way campaign wraps up this month, volunteers and donors continue to support this growing campaign.

“With over $370,000 raised we have achieved 70 per cent of our fundraising goal to support social programs and services in the Lower Mainland,” Stan Auerbach, this year’s campaign chair, says. “With one month left we are confident that we will reach our goal!”

A number of events both on and off campus have contributed to raising awareness about this year’s campaign.

“For the third year in a row, UBC volunteers participated in United Way’s ‘Days of Caring’ program for a day. A group of us visited Surrey Delta Immigrant Services Society for a day of painting, power-washing and learning more about one of the agencies that receives core funding from United Way,” Auerbach says.

“Combine this outing with on-campus events like bake sales, silent auctions, United Way presentations and visits from agency speakers - and we’ve been very successful at raising awareness of both the campaign this year and the needs of communities across the Lower Mainland.

“Our campaign would not be as successful as it is without the tremendous hard work and support of the volunteers on campus. They deserve a huge thank you!” adds Auerbach.

Community members still interested in supporting this year’s campaign are encouraged to donate before December 9 -- the deadline for final prize draws, including a draw for two flight tickets on Air Canada. Donations will be accepted until the end of the tax year, December 31.
