Tuesday barbecue to support local charities

The contributions of community partners make possible the work of the United Way, according to its CEO Penny Marrett.

“Last year, because of your support, United Way’s funded strategies helped 196,000 people in Windsor-Essex,” she told volunteers at its 2012 campaign kick-off, September 14.

Retired members of the UWindsor faculty and staff will kick off the campus campaign for United Way with its annual fundraising barbecue, Tuesday, September 25. A donation of just $4 will earn supporters a hotdog or veggie dog, chips and a drink.

The event takes place in front of the CAW Student Centre from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., or until supplies run out.
