What if we told you one simple act could have a tremendous positive impact on people across Perth and Huron Counties?
Beginning September 21 and running through October 8, the LCBO is launching a second round of their ‘Giving Back in Our Community’ campaign in 17 stores across Perth and Huron counties to benefit United Way Perth-Huron (UWPH); and all you need to do is say yes when an LCBO employee at your local retail location asks if you want to donate $10, $5 or $2.
In 2016, the LCBO donated more than $52,000 to United Way Perth-Huron. In fact, the LCBO is the single largest United Way contributor province-wide from the Ontario Public Service sector.
These generous donations from the LCBO and its customers come at an important time; at a kick-off lunch in Stratford on Friday, September 15 and Tour through Huron and Perth Counties on Monday, September 18, UWPH announced a courageous goal of $1,556,445 for the 2017 campaign. “All these generous donations from the LCBO and its customers help ensure existing needs in our community continue to be met,” shared United Way Executive Director Ryan Erb, “Of course United Way Perth-Huron’s mandate goes well beyond money to affect lives across our region in a positive way, but without donations we can’t begin to do the work that needs to be done across Huron and Perth Counties.”
United Way Perth-Huron is 100% local and supports almost 50 organizations and services across Perth and Huron Counties. To help United Way continue supporting these local services, donations are gladly accepted.
