The participation in the university community for 2013 was only 8%. Imagine how much more we could do to help those in need in our community if we doubled that rate? Start today - your donation, not matter the size will make a positive difference to someone in the community. Making a pledge is easy and can be one time, in installments, by cheque, credit card or easy payroll deductions.
If you would like to make a donation, follow this link to United Way's secure site to make your electronic donation today.
And, we have some fun events planned during the campaign! Be sure to join us for them.
Loopy Lunch - A truck lunch on the bus loop
Thank you for joining us for Loopy Lunch this year. We had a tremendous response and appreciate everyone who braved the later weather of the day and the lines! Loopy Lunch will be back next year!

Detention for Dollars
October 7, 2014
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Someone needs a timeout! And you know who it is. It's up to you to identify a deserving coworker, colleague or boss and make sure they get the timeout they need/deserve. Don't wait for the Law; download the subpoena and deliver it to the suspect yourself. See that justice is done!
Once the accused has received notification, it's up to them to decide how they want to respond.
They can get themselves off the hook entirely by getting a few United Way pledges or they can choose to present themselves to the Big House in Quad (CAB if the weather is bad) on October 7 and face "summary judgement and rapid incarceration."
Whatever happens, we're hoping for a laugh, maybe a few photos and, most important of all, donations for United Way.
