UBC United Way Looks to Grow
The UBC United Way Committee has set an aggressive target this year, seeking to improve campus-wide participation with at least 100 new donors and increasing UBC’s United Way dollars by seven per cent over last year.
The United Way Committee and all its volunteers welcome Andrew Parr, Director of UBC Food Services, as the 2006 United Way Campaign Chair. Parr, along with dozens of other dedicated volunteers, will be putting in many extra hours this fall as they help UBC reach its campaign goal.
“We want to continue to grow UBC’s campaign this year through increasing campus-wide participation and awareness,” says Parr. “We are planning to do this through growing our already successful special events and presentations in some very supportive environments. Even though this campaign is already one of the largest in the Lower Mainland, our potential for exponential growth is really exciting.”
As an organization committed to the community, the United Way embodies the values of community involvement and social responsibility that Trek 2010 promotes, says Eilis Courtney, Senior Coordinator for UBC United Way.
