United Way campaign makes goal
In 2009, Brock employees made a difference in our community by donating to the Brock United Way campaign and putting the university over its 2009 goal of $109,000.
The university campaign raised $110,438, or slightly more than 101 per cent.
“The University community once again showed us its commitment to helping others,” said Kevin Lawr, who with Gregory Finn co-chaired the 2009 campaign. “All the volunteers came together to make it a success, but it would not have been possible without the donations from people all across the institution.”
The 2009 volunteer committee included:
- Kevin Lawr
- Greg Finn
- Lynne Bubic
- Marla Portfilio
- Lisa Wilson
- Joan Dundas
- Carolyn Mullin
- Kevin Grout
- Karolyn Bartel
- Tara Franken
- Cheryl Clarke
Karen Merritt, James Bell, Sodexo, Campus Security, Mail Services, Printing Services and many other volunteers also provided the support network for publications and events.
While the six-week autumn campaign officially wrapped up at the end of November 2009, pledges and donations were accepted towards the 2009 goal until the end of the calendar year. The volunteer committee has now decided to move forward with a year-round campaign for 2010.
