2009-04-07

Queen’s took home four major awards at the United Way’s Workplace Volunteer Awards and Appreciation event on March 30.

In total, the Queen’s community (faculty, staff, retirees and students) raised $308,116 for United Way during the 2008 campaign, and the university was recognized in several specific areas.

A new award was introduced this year for workplaces with one or more Leaders of the Way (those who donate at least $1,000). Queen’s took the top prize in this category, winning the Ruby Leadership Award for workplaces with more than 40 Leaders of the Way.

The $100K Team Award is given to employee campaigns that raise over $100,000 through corporate, employee and event donations. Queen’s was one of six workplaces that won in this category out of a total of 420 workplaces.

The university also took away the Cornerstone Award, which is given to workplaces that raise more than $25,000.

Students at Queen’s received the Spirit of Community Award for organizations that reached out to the community and raised significant funds for the campaign.

Faculty co-chair Bob Crawford attended the awards event, as well as students Jacquie Woo (current chair) Megan Barnes and Katrina van Laren (incoming co-chairs).
