Sarnia, Ontaio — United Way of Sarnia-Lambton will tackle the fall campaign with a $1,900,000 Needs Target. The target, set by the local volunteer Board of Directors, is unchanged from 2019.
“The vital programs that are funded by United Way remain a critical component in invoking positive change throughout Lambton County”, said Vicky Ducharme, Volunteer Campaign Chair. “Before this pandemic and in the future, we must continue working to help vulnerable youth, families and seniors. The $1,900,000 is needed to fund United Way programs at appropriate levels.”
The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton campaign will focus on three priority areas; Healthy Resilient Successful Kids, Empowering and Strengthening Self Sustaining Families; and Healthy, Safe and Independent Seniors.
The Day of Caring, the annual campaign kick-off, has been cancelled along with many of the fundraising events that the United Way relies on. The campaign will focus on employee giving while increasing the direct mail and online giving programs.
