Change Starts Here campaign kicks off with breakfast

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island kick off the Change Starts Here fundraising campaign Friday.

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island (UWCNVI) is kicking off the Change Starts Here fundraising campaign with their annual breakfast this Friday at 7 a.m. at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

The breakfast is an opportunity for sponsors, partner agencies and the public to hear more about the need in the community and about the campaign, as well as enjoy a sit-down breakfast all in support of UWCNVI.

Funds raised from the Change Starts Here campaign support much-needed programs for children, youth and seniors across the Comox Valley.

Tickets for the breakfast are $30 and can be ordered by calling 250-338-1151 or e-mailing info@uwcnvi.ca.

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

Last year, UWCNVI raised over $920,000 in the Central and Northern communities. Because of the generosity of donors and volunteers, UWCNVI is funding grants in 2012 to 44 charities supporting 50 programs for children, youth and seniors in Central Island, the Comox Valley and Campbell River.

UWCNVI is also a partner in the Success by 6 early childhood development programs throughout the Central and Northern Island. — United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island
