United Way benefits from the time & talents of thousands of generous Winnipeggers. We couldn’t do it without you! So much important work gets done by our volunteers, like the 1500 Day of Caring volunteers who gave 5600+ hours last year making Winnipeg agencies more welcoming. Like the more than 400 people who spent more than 1600 hours sorting
United Way was saddened to learn this morning of the passing of George T. Richardson, a pillar of our community and a central figure in the history and founding of United Way of Winnipeg. He was 89.
To the volunteers who have given so much to our community throughout 2013, we extend our deepest appreciation and warmest regards on behalf of Winnipeggers everywhere. May the spirit of peace and goodwill that shines brightly during this magical season extend throughout the year. Thank you: for your vision, your leadership, your strength and optimism.
Every year we award the Student Community Service Award to high school students who show outstanding commitment to their community.
