United Way invests $40,000 locally

The local United Way Community Impact Council selects several non-profit groups for donations

This past month, members of the local United Way Community Impact Council allocated over $40,000 to support local non-profit organizations. All the funds were raised through Cache Creek/Logan Lake/Ashcroft United Way campaigns which included United Steelworkers Local 7619, Highland Valley Copper employees, Wastech, RBC, Interior Savings and other individual donors.

Those recipients include: Logan Lake Secondary – Respectful Relationships; South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society – Mother Goose; Ashcroft Community Resource Society – Information Directory; Logan Lake WHY – Youth and Children’s Programs; Winding River Arts and Performance Society; Cache Creek and Ashcroft Elementary – After-School Art Program; and Cache Creek PAC – After- School Zumba Program.

Members of the Community Impact Council serve as local United Way champions who act as advocates, and decision makers for their communities. Money raised through a United Way campaign, stays in the community that it was raised in. As our campaigns continue to grow in strength, we are responsible and accountable for how the money is re-invested in the community.

United Way works to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action. United Way affects change in three focus areas; All that kids can be, From poverty to possibility and Healthy people, strong communities.
