Inviting pledges for the United Way campaign

As many of you know, each year I personally get involved in supporting the United Way. With the heavy impact of COVID-19 being felt throughout our vulnerable communities, I recognize that this year our support is needed more than ever. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that the UBC United Way campaign officially launches on October 5 in Vancouver and the Okanagan.

The United Way has been working to respond to the needs of our vulnerable communities hit hard by COVID-19. While we’ve seen unprecedented acts of kindness, there’s still more that we can all do to support this important cause.

My goal is to inspire 1,000 people to become United Way donors. Every donation helps those in need and I strongly encourage everyone to become a donor for this important cause. Next Monday, you will receive an email from inviting you to make a payroll pledge online.

Together we can make a difference by supporting the United Way. To learn more about the UBC United Way campaign, and the different ways you can get involved, visit:

Thank you for supporting the United Way.
