A little short but going strong!Posted: April 18, 2012
The 2011 United Way Fundraising Campaign raised $98,327, slightly below the goal of $100,000. In these economic times and in view of the amount of fundraising happening throughout the year the campaign was a success and will adequately fund a number of programs and services.
An Allocations Committee comprised of two United Way Board Directors and three community members recommended to the Board of Directors that twelve agencies receive funding in 2012. The board approved the recommendation and these agencies will receive funding: Community Connections of South East BC – Better Babies Program, Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cranbrook, Cranbrook Society for Community Living, Options For Sexual Health – East Kootenay Branch, Cranbrook and District Restorative Justice, Cranbrook Hospice Society, East Kootenay P.A.R.T.Y. Program, Cranbrook Daybreak Program, Kimberley Daybreak Program, Dr FW Green Memorial Home, and the Kimberley Special Care Home.
The board has also set aside $5,000 to fund youth-driven special projects. Guidelines and application forms will be released soon. Youth are important to our community and we hope to assist them in getting involved in community projects.
AGM April 25
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 25 at 5:30 p.m. at the Manual Training Centre (beside the library). The meeting is open to the community so please plan to attend to help celebrate 2011 achievements, to thank donors, volunteers and the agencies that put your United Way donations to good use benefitting the community. Please call 250-426-8833 if you would like more information.
