Queen's United Way campaign kicks off Oct. 23
Mark your calendar and join in the fun. Queen's and the United Way present a giant barbecue on Thursday, Oct. 23 from 11 am to 2 pm at the Biosciences Complex on Arch Street.
The event officially kicks off the annual fall Queen's campaign and features games, music and celebrity servers. Funds raised will go to the Queen's University 2008 United Way campaign.
“The goal is: $315,000 – a record goal for Queen's,” says Shelley Aylesworth-Spink, staff co-chair. “Last year, we raised about $313,000.”
Another goal of this year's campaign is to raise awareness of the impact that Queen's has on the United Way, she says.
“We have arranged for speakers from local United Way agencies, including volunteers and clients served by United Way programs and services. to present at several staff meetings in Student Affairs and the Office of the University Registrar. We are using these opportunities to thank the Queen's community for their support of United Way and provide information about the difference their donations make in peoples lives.”
Bob Crawford, faculty co-chair, Carl Hamacher, retirees co-chair, Sherri Ferris, CUPE co-chair and Jacqueline Woo, AMS United Way Chair form the rest of this year's committee.
