Our Community Work

Local Love for AREA 506 

At United Way, we are so grateful for our partnership with AREA 506.  In 2018, people behind AREA 506 were looking to give back to the community. They also needed volunteer power.

Volunteers drive our success

Celebrating a 40th by giving back 

On the occasion of its 40th year in business, Aquila Tours of Saint John came up with a unique way to give back.

Helping frontline workers at community non-profits

An essential focus of the United Way is ensuring that the non-profit organizations so vital to our communities are strong and robust. Maintaining that vigor has been especially important during the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has not only significantly increased the workload of non-profit leaders, managers and frontline workers but led to an increase in mental health issues.

Saint John Energy: Generously giving back

At Saint John Energy, giving back to the community is part of its mission. Not only is it part of the corporate culture, but the employees believe deeply as well.

Compassion in the face of great uncertainty

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and pushed us into lockdown last March, all 11 United Ways across Atlantic Canada mobilized to raise funds to meet sudden and basic needs in our communities, establishing the Atlantic Compassion Fund.
