Laurier's Waterloo campus will kick off its United Way campaign Oct. 10. The kick-off event will feature representatives from United Way to talk about the impact of your donations, as well as a healthy dose of baking, competition and prizes!

Waterloo Campus kick off: United Way Discovery Fair and baking contest
Time: October 10, noon - 2 p.m. with brief presentations at 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.
Location: The Turret

Hear presentations from United Way and university representatives, visit United Way booths to learn about the work of United Way agencies, eat some sweet treats and enter to win amazing prizes! Get your United Way passport stamped at each booth to enter to win a prize. You can also enter to win prizes by completing your United Way pledge form at the event.

Donít miss the bake sale competition at the United Way Discovery Fair! Will it be a cookie from the Presidentís group or a brownie from one of the faculties that tantalizes your taste buds? Bring your coins to buy some baked goods, or better yet, if you like to bake and have a competitive streak, put a team together to compete! The team that raises the most money will receive a certificate, a small prize to share and bragging rights for the year.

A key part of Laurierís focus on inspiring lives of leadership and purpose is supporting the communities in which we reside. It has been a proud part of our history, and is an essential part of our future. Laurierís support takes many forms, and during the month of October each year, one of the ways we impact our communities is by supporting the United Way of Kitchener Waterloo & Area, the Brant United Way and United Way Toronto through Laurierís United Way campaign.

The impact that the United Wayís support of member agencies has on the people who use their services is profound. Many of us have benefitted from these services directly, or have friends or family members who have. This is the bigger picture that we hope people understand when they make the decision about supporting the campaign.

Laurier's Brantford campus held its campaign kick-off and baking contest October 1.

More information about the United Way Campaign and the agencies it supports will be posted to the website once the campaign begins.
