United Way of Pictou County needs you help! We have received an increase in the number of requests for funding from local organizations and are experiencing a 13% shortfall in reaching their $315,000 goal.
“We need your help to close this small gap so we, as a community, can continue to help make positive social changes here in Pictou County”, says Jim Fitt, United Way’s Campaign Co-Chair. Fitt, along with co-chair, James Lundrigan are two community volunteers who lead the United Way’s 2014 fundraising campaign.
Lundrigan also sits on the United Way’s Community Investment Committee and noted that this year the United Way is not only seeing an increase in the number of requests for funding but that organizations are also adding more programs to help meet the needs of our community. “Giving is easy and every bit can make a big impact our community. It’s also not too late to run a campaign at your workplace. It’s easy and gives people the opportunity to give via payroll deduction.” says Lundrigan.
Last year the United Way funded 14 local programs and services that helped over 10,000 people move from poverty to possibility, become healthier and stronger, and allowed kids to be all that they can be.
By giving a gift to the United Way of Pictou County, that one donation:
• stays right here in our community
• supports local charities and programs
• supports 1-in-4 community members
