In 2021, we see hope – and need

As we launch into a new year with collective hope that the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic will ease and we will succeed in moving past it, I want to express my most sincere gratitude to our donors, supporters and partners in helping our community’s most vulnerable during this most difficult time.

With generous support, hard work and dedication, we have been able to help so many through this unprecedented time. I’m very proud to be a part of the United Way organization, which is steadfast in its commitment to the region of Saint John, Kings & Charlotte Counties before, during and after a crisis.

Our team is working hard to ensure that we continue to provide essential support to our funded partners and to be there for the region’s non-profit community. These organizations are doing incredible work to ensure the people that depend on them receive the services they need.

We would not be able to do all of this without the support of our donors, who are full of heart. 

We are in the final weeks of our annual fundraising campaign and, while it is going well, we have yet to reach our goal of $1.56 milllion.

If you have given, I thank you – your support really does mean so much. If you haven’t, there is still time. Simply click on the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of this message.

The stories we share here with you on our website and in United, our monthly newsletter, are what inspire and motivate us, and we hope you too.

With all the very best for 2021,

Derek O’Brien, Chair
