United Way invites the community to "improve lives locally" during 2016 Campaign

Aylmer, ON - At the Family Central Restaurant, Tom Marks, the United Way's 2016 Campaign Chair, joined Mayors Greg Currie and Dave Mennhill to serve up hope and calling on everyone in our community to come together and "improve lives locally."

"For me, our Campaign is about the real impact that United Way has in people's lives, right here in Elgin and St. Thomas," said Marks. "When you give to the Campaign, you transform lives. Whether it's giving a child a good start in life or providing someone with a path out of poverty, I give to United Way knowing my donation creates lasting change. As a long- time volunteer with United Way Elgin-St. Thomas, I have seen with my own eyes how these funds can change people's lives."

Each year, United Way Elgin-St. Thomas sets out to raise the most money possible to support a vital network of programs and services that help people build brighter futures for themselves and their families. This year, United Way is calling on champions from all sectors – private, public, non-profit and labour – in addition to individual donors and volunteers, to rally behind its $485,000 goal. Last year Aylmer raised over $30,000, this year we hope to achieve if not exceed this amount.

"We are also proud to partner with our agency colleagues, Mennonite Community Services to showcase how they are improving lives locally," said Marks. One such example is through our investment to the Family Education & Support Project of Aylmer, which helps create neighbourhoods that are vibrant, where residents can experience a sense of safety and well-being.
