Campaign Kick-Off

would like to start by thanking the generous donors and wonderful volunteers who supported last year?s successful inaugural Campaign. We raised over $101,000 for our community, which was 20% above the goal! Whenever the people of North Bay and area come together to make a difference, it is truly amazing what is accomplished! Creating a real and lasting difference is what community is all about and requires continued support for local programs

and services that provide assistance to individuals and families in need. This year?s campaign is the first year of a three year plan that will sustain this continued support. The plan will strengthen existing relationships, develop new ones and include clear consistent communication to donors and to the community. We know the needs in our area outweigh the resources available. Your support as an individual or as part

of a group will help to meet the needs. With your support, our community will continue to be strengthened and basic human needs will be met. We are stronger together and change can occur! I look forward to this year?s Campaign where we can raise even more money to support our community! It will be a pleasure to see supporters I?ve already met before and to meet new United Way supporters.
