I am delighted to share with you the success of the 2020 United Way Saint John, Kings & Charlotte campaign.
When we launched our campaign, there was uncertainty about how we could achieve our goal. I knew that the people and organizations of Saint John, Kings and Charlotte understood that their support was needed more than ever. This was, and is, especially true, given the challenges of raising funds and organizing events in the midst of the current pandemic.
By giving to the United Way, you are supporting organizations that help vulnerable individuals in our region. You understand that, by donating to the United Way, you are helping to restore hope and strength to people and organizations that need it most.
This year, our donors did not let us down. Thanks to their generosity and our dedicated campaign team, we raised more than $1.7 million, exceeding our $1.56 million goal.
I am extremely grateful for this level of support. Thank you for all you have done to support the United Way.
