United Way campaign seeking volunteers for campus organizing committee

The campus campaign for United Way is seeking new members for its organizing committee, which directs the charity’s fundraising efforts among UWindsor faculty, staff and students.

Volunteers, under the leadership of co-chairs Datta Pillay and Sheri Lowrie, coordinate events and communications to inform potential donors about the United Way’s work in Windsor-Essex.

“We are a small but mighty group,” Lowrie says, pointing to a record of 10 straight years topping $100,000 in support. “A new committee member or two would be a great help.”

The committee could benefit having a member help with kick-off and appreciation events, says Lowrie, as well as a member to assist with the operation of the campus-wide canvass.

“The time commitment is primarily in the fall, meeting about twice a month during the semester,” she says.

The committee will meet at the end of this month to finalize planning the 2016 campaign. To inquire about joining, contact Lowrie at or 519-253-3000, ext. 6730.
