LCBO Launches 2015 United Way Campaign

LCBO Give At The Till

From July 30 to August 9, every LCBO location in the City and County of Peterborough will be hosting the give at the till program in support of the United Way Peterborough & District 2015 Campaign. Individuals have the opportunity to give $10, $5 or $2 at the time of purchase.

Last year, LCBOs across Peterborough raised more than $39,000 through this initiative. They have been a long-time supporter of United Way and with help from the public, this year’s campaign will be successful once again!
