One in seven B.C. children lives in poverty. More than one third of children in Grades 4-7 are bullied or bully others. About one in four seniors live alone. United Way knows how to prevent poverty, bullying and social isolation, and United Way and UBC have worked together for many years examining social issues and identifying prevention-based solution.
The annual UBC Community United Way kicked off October 7. This year, UBC aims to raise $590,000 and increase the number of donors contributing through monthly payroll donations. Please join us in supporting the UBC Community United Way Campaign. For more information, visit http://www.unitedway.ubc.ca/.
