UBC United Way Campaign kicks off Sept. 22
The 2004 UBC United Way Campaign kicks off with a great BBQ
later this month on Wednesday, Sep. 22. A burger and pop costs

“One way of doing this is increasing the number of
volunteers in the campaign. This is a great opportunity for
staff, faculty and students to build their leadership, public
speaking and event planning skills.”
