Share Your Story – Inspire Other Workplace Campaigns

Tell us about your workplace’s United Way Campaign!

Our campaign vision:  to inspire one another to give, mentor and strengthen support of UWCKL’s community investments and our funded agencies.

We have amazing Individual donors and workplace donors.  Throughout the year we will continue to connect and thank them for their ongoing support.

This campaign will feature workplaces. 

Goal:  capture messages from workplaces that include:

  • How they participate—payroll/chili or soup cook-offs/ special events internally, (sharing ideas with other workplaces will inspire new ideas)
  • Customer and/or employee loyalty
  • Company-team building
  • Some workplaces designate to projects—i.e. community gardens, bonspiel event, bursary programs -(great dual branding and commitment & passion for a project)
  • Celebrate with partners their stories and milestones:  Crayola Canada will be hosting its 30th annual sale and has raised in total over $1 million
  • Hear the stories and inspire others to join us in helping more than 30,000 people (90% of Canadians will access a United Way funded program in their lifetime)

We want to celebrate your workplace and all that you do to support the community! Send us your workplace campaign stories and pictures and we will share them on our website and social media. Help inspire other workplaces to get involved by sharing what you are most proud of about your workplace campaign.

Chris Hadfield Event

This was the biggest one day event ever for the United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The day began with Col. Hadfield making a quick visit to Community Living. Following this visit, he spoke with students from the two local school boards as well as a local private school. Over 1,600 students, teachers & staff attended these two events. There was also a Meet & Greet for sponsors where guests had a chance to meet Col. Hadfield. This was followed by the event at the Academy Theatre, with over 600 attendees. After the event there was a book signing. The event raised over $40,000. We would like to thank the Three Chairs Committee: Barb Truax, Tim Truax, Sherry Giltenan Truax, Ruth Tait, Pat Twohey and Marlene Wood for their hard work to make this event happen. What a wonderful memory for everyone who had a chance to be a part of this day!
