Winnipeggers understand all about teamwork. We know we can do much more to create positive change in our community when we work together; pooling our strengths, knowledge and resources to enhance our leverage and deepen our impact. Together, we have made a lot of things possible that would not have happened otherwise. In 2011, we raised $19.7 million to change lives through United Way.
This book is filled with hundreds of reasons why United Way is able to reach out to Winnipeggers when they need help most. It contains the names of businesses and organizations that anchor our team because they recognize the value of participating in a United Way campaign – as much for their own team as for the entire community.
Companies like PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, where the rewards of increased participation are really adding up. Or CanadaDrugs.com, where a four-to-one corporate match is a prescription for teambuilding success. Or RBC Royal Bank, where employees have a chance to see the impact of their donations firsthand while lending a hand on community projects.
THANK YOU for trusting United Way to make a difference in the lives of people living in Winnipeg, including your employees, customers, clients and associates. With one in three Winnipeggers impacted by United Way programs ever year, you are bound to know someone.
