Congratulations to Community Spirit Awards Winners!

Last week I volunteered for the United Way of the Lower Mainland at their annual Community Spirit Awards. It was a great evening to reconnect with people I worked with last Fall and to be smiling and knowing that I was pitching in again to do good community work.

I love United Way. They do such amazing work for the people of the Lower Mainland. If you're not sure what they're all about, you should check out their website. In brief, they focus on three main categories: Early Childhood (getting kids ready for school by the age of 5, including things like childcare for young mothers, nutrition/breakfast programs), Middle Childhood (prevention programs like afterschool study groups, Boys and Girls clubs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters), and Seniors (funding programs that help seniors live independently, transportation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping).

They couldn't do it with your support! So congratulations to everyone who helped raise money this year for the United Way campaign! You can check out their Flickr page for photos from the event!
