The members at 19 Wing Comox raised $30,820.76 for United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island through their employee giving program.

CFB Comox has been involved with United Way for over 10 years and their contributions grow each year. The Change Starts Here campaign raised $203,000 for 11 community partners delivering programs in the Comox Valley in 2012/13.

“We are grateful for CFB Comox’s strong support of United Way year after year,” said Brad Bayly of UWCNVI. “A big part of our fundraising comes from businesses and organizations in the community who give through their workplaces. Without their support we would not be able to help the vulnerable in our community as we do.”

Donations directly help hundreds of people in our community through the work by United Way’s 11 community partners that support kids to be all they can be, empower people to move from poverty to possibility and help create healthy, strong communities.

Employee giving programs, donations and volunteers are sought throughout the year. Contact UWCNVI at 250-729-7400 or info@uwcnvi.ca or visit www.uwcnvi.ca to learn more how you can help.

Since 1958, United Way CNVI has invested in programs and services that help people to improve their lives and that strengthen communities.

Because of the generosity of donors and volunteers, UWCNVI is able to fund 44 charities supporting 50 programs for children, youth and seniors in Central Island, the Comox Valley and Campbell River this year.

UWCNVI also manages the Success by Six early childhood development programs throughout the Central and Northern Island and plays a part in working to reduce homelessness by being the Community Entity for Nanaimo’s Homelessness Strategy.

United Way’s Better at Home program to help keep seniors living at home will begin in the Comox Valley, Nanaimo, Parksville, Port Hardy and Port Alberni in 2013.
