United Way of Chatham-Kent’s 2015 Annual Fundraising Campaign has reached the half way point of both the campaign period and the fundraising target.

“Following yesterday’s amazing announcement at Union Gas, we are pleased to share with the community that we have reached $1,059,028,” says Tom Slager, Acting Director of Resource Development.

2015 Volunteer Campaign Co-Chairs, Kelly Bayda and Aimee June are delighted about this achievement.

“We are very excited about the progress of the Campaign! We continue to be optimistic that we will reach our target of $2,015,000. Being at the half way point it is encouraging that our community is right there with us and lifting this year’s Campaign to a higher level,” said Aimee.

Kelly added, “we can’t thank the residents of Chatham-Kent enough for their generosity, however, we still have two months to go and we need to keep the momentum, awareness and spirit in high gear! We have strived to keep our enthusiasm high throughout the campaign from beginning to end. Many workplace campaigns are in full swing and we are looking forward to the days to come. Together, we are possibility.”

The 2015 Campaign will wrap up on January 21, 2016.
