United Way Perth-Huron sets another record, smashing fundraising goal

United Way Perth-Huron marked the end of the 2021 annual campaign and announced a record-breaking total of $2,236,904, well over the campaign goal of $2.002 million.

“We appreciate the incredible support donors have shown,” said Executive Director Ryan Erb. “Vulnerable local people are still struggling and we know that with the cost of everything rising, more people need a helping hand. We are committed to continuing our work addressing pressing needs across Perth-Huron.”

“We’re grateful to our communities for supporting United Way,” added Campaign Co-chair Rob Edney. “All over Perth-Huron, people really demonstrated their support for United Way’s mission. That’s something I will definitely take away as a memory from the past seven months.”

“Being co-chairs meant we were lucky enough to experience the local love in our communities,” added Campaign Co-chair Leslie Edney. “That spirit of generosity and caring will help so many get the support they need. Thank you to everyone who gave to United Way.”

Through a series of Spirit of Community videos, United Waycelebrated the positive impact local donors, workplaces, volunteers, partners and communities had in supporting UWPH’s work across the region; including through community committees in Exeter, Goderich, North Perth, St. Marys, Stratford and Wingham, as well as events such as Coldest Night of the Year. The organization also shared stories of local people who have the chance for a brighter future thanks to UWPH and supported partners and programs. View the videos at HERE.
