Laurier cooks up United Way Campaign kick-off events Oct. 1 and Oct. 10

Sep 30/13

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 will kick off its United Way campaign at the Brantford campus Oct. 1 and the Waterloo campus Oct. 10. Both kick-off events will feature representatives from United Way to talk about the impact of your donations, and both will feature a healthy dose of baking, competition and prizes!

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.

To register a team, email your team name, participants, department/Faculty and phone number to Lynne Jordan at by October 7.

More information about the United Way Campaign will be posted to the website.
