Our Annual General Meeting, held last month, has me reflecting on a remarkable year.
United Way Saint John Kings & Charlotte embodies the true essence of community, from its commitment to a best-in-class non-profit sector to the compassion and relationships formed through conversations with those who provide and receive support from our funded partners.
After years of exploring innovative ways to connect and collaborate, it was refreshing to return to in-person events and opportunities. Our sold-out 2022 campaign kickoff at the Delta Hotel and our Songs of the City event at the Imperial Theatre reaffirmed that others were eager to come together and support our community.
To our generous donors, we simply could not accomplish this work without you. Your continuous support demonstrates the innate spirit of giving and helping others ingrained in our Maritime DNA.
Our incredible volunteers, including my colleagues serving on our board of directors, deserve tremendous recognition for the time and talent they contribute to fostering a United Way that continues to grow in local love. Your efforts to promote and support United Way’s work have a significant impact on people’s lives.
Lastly, a big thank you to the entire staff of United Way Saint John, Kings & Charlotte. Your unwavering dedication to understanding our community’s needs, finding and implementing impactful solutions, and consistently rising to meet those needs is truly extraordinary.
I invite you to read more of our accomplishments in 2022 – including the remarkable impact we were able to make thanks to donor support and incredible funded partners – in our annual report. It is available online on the reports section of our website.
