UNITED WAY OF SARNIA-LAMBTON REACHES 2016 GOAL
SARNIA, ON (December 14, 2016) – The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton thermometer has reached the top! “It was a challenging year and we are proud of our two million dollar achievement,” said Campaign Chair Richard Kelch. “We want to thank the community two million times over as this is once again a testament the generosity and caring nature of Lambton County.”
The goal of $2 Million was set by the United Way Volunteer Board of Directors. This was the amount raised in 2015 and the Board felt it would be a challenge to reach for a second year.
“We knew that a 100% effort would be needed among our campaign team volunteers, United Way staff and employee campaign representatives. It was equally as important to have each business, organization and individual be committed to make the 2016 campaign a success”, said Kelch. “This was no small feat and was accomplished by the increasing generosity of long time donors combined with new donors which kept the campaign thermometer moving upward.”
United Way of Sarnia-Lambton started the week at 92.5% but with announcements from Shell, Cabot, Union Gas as well as updates from City of Sarnia, County of Lambton and many others the United Way hit 100% today. United Way funds 37 programs and services provided by 20 agencies.
“We need to thank the Employee Campaign Coordinators who were integral to our 100% success, said Kelch. “We also would like to thank each of our direct mail donors, our retirees who continue to support us year after year and the donors who walked in off the street to donate to the United Way campaign. “
United Way of Sarnia-Lambton has served our community for 60 years and will move forward with a focused approach to address community-level issues by showing measurable progress in the areas of youth, healthy seniors, and empowering families.
