An event to officially celebrate the start of the campus campaign for the United Way will feature free coffee and doughnut bites, as well as a chance for UWindsor employees to win an extra vacation day.
The United Way flag will rise outside Chrysler Hall Tower on Tuesday, November 1, to signal the University’s commitment to the charity’s programs to reduce the effects of poverty across Windsor-Essex County.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. on the tower’s west side (or in the CAW Student Centre Commons in the event of rain). After presentations on the charity’s community impact, faculty and staff in attendance will have the opportunity to enter a prize raffle for a free vacation day or a $50 gift card to Costco.
Volunteer canvassers will distribute pledge forms to colleagues on October 31 and November 1, seeking their support for the United Way’s investment in three priority areas: reducing poverty, supporting kids and families, and strengthening neighbourhoods.
