The total raised for this year’s UBC Okanagan campus United Way Campaign was $37,751.87. This number is the result of our campus community’s spirit of giving to make a difference in our valley and all funds raised went to the United Way of the Southern Interior BC.
Special thanks to the many groups who raised funds through special events, including the UBC Okanagan Library, the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, Ceremonies and Events, Food Services, JDC West, the Engineering Society, Nourishing Futures and UBC Students’ Union Okanagan. More special thanks to campaign volunteers Amanda Hancock, Rosemary Thompson, Rob Giardino, Neeta Hundle, Sherry Petkau, Lois Marshall, Kim Buschert, Paula Verholen and Bud Mortenson, and co-chairs Cara Kirkey and Suann Brown.
Payroll donors were entered into draws for annual passes donated by Athletics and Recreation and Parking Services. Congratulations to Christine Zeindler and Andrew Jirasek.
