$250K (#SoClose) Campaign

To date, close to 300 workplaces and over 2000 employees have given to United Way’s 2017 campaign. This community’s ongoing commitment to creating hope and possibility for close to 60,000 people continues to inspire us … and for this we thank you! Our campaign chair, Neil Morton, has recruited a #plaidtastic cabinet team. Together, their shared love for this community has created a tsunami that has stirred workplaces like Trent University to exceed their campaign goal by $25K. And today, we are #soclose to getting to our campaign goal. We are within sight of finish line but we need one last push to get there. That’s where UWP and Peterborough needs you. We are asking our community to join us in one last push to the finish line.
