Thank you!

Thank You to the Residents of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County!


On behalf of the United Way Team, a heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to make the 2014/15 Campaign the most successful one ever!  Through your generosity we raised a total of  $473,778.00 for our funded agencies and programs serving 1 in 3 residents in the area.

The Campaign Touchdown event, hosted by St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School, was held March 31, 2015.  UW CKL Executive Director Penny Barton Dyke spoke from the heart when she thanked the community, as did Campaign Co-Chair Robin Nisbet.
