change lives.

Join us for our exciting kickoff!

As we all hurtle to the end of summer, our staff are busy gearing up for a most exciting time for us – our campaign kickoff.

This year, we will launch with an awesome virtual and interactive event on Sept. 15 at noon.

Everyone is invited to join us to learn about this year’s fundraising campaign and the amazing impact that donors’ gifts have on our communities and on our most vulnerable citizens.

The 30-minute virtual format is very different from our traditional campaign kickoff events, where hundreds of people converge over a meal to share in a celebration to mark a true community effort.

Although, thankfully, our communities are emerging from the isolation of the pandemic, the COVID virus is still with us. There are a variety of new realities for workplaces and different comfort levels people have over gathering face-to-face.

This virtual event allows us to be certain people our friends and supporters are comfortable joining us, and allows people from all corners of Saint John, Kings and Charlotte to share in this most important time in the United Way calendar.

Everyone is invited – we want as many people as possible to share in the excitement, and have a chance to pledge their support for a phenomenal start to the campaign!

Join us to hear first-hand the incredible impact you are making by supporting the United Way. You’ll hear heart-tugging testimonials from those whose lives have been transformed thanks to the gifts of our supporters, and you’ll have the opportunity to hear from some of our funded organizations on the difference United Way funding makes.

We would not exist but for the incredible support we get from organizations and individuals throughout our region, and having that generous spirit with us on Sept. 15 will be such a boost to the launch of this campaign!

Anyone can join us for the kickoff (it’s free) but advance registration is required. Please visit our online registration page.

Our thanks to Canaport LNG for sponsoring this event! We deeply appreciate your support as we start another campaign that is so critical for our region.
