“Today really is about shining light on community,” said Dave Angus, volunteer Winnipeg campaign chair for United Way.
“Through this tough time we have to remind ourselves collectively that there are people out there struggling and they need our help, so this is a time for giving.”
Dave was excited to see so many Winnipeggers out in the community today, all with one goal in mind: a better community for everyone who lives here.
We are so grateful to Payworks, Rogers, SkipTheDishes, TD, and Wawanesa Insurance for showing their support and sponsoring this day of active celebration. Their generous collective donation of $100,000 will be spent helping to build a better Winnipeg for everyone.
None of us could have imagined the challenges our community is facing as a result of a global pandemic. The needs in our community are greater than ever—mental health and addictions, family stress, job loss.
The message is simple—we need you. We need everyone. Every gift matters.
That’s why Johnston Group is matching every new gift of $150—just about $3/week! Take the 150 Challenge now, so no Winnipegger is left behind.
