Answering city needs

With many local agencies reportedly struggling with government funding cuts, it’s gratifying that the Guelph-Wellington-Dufferin United Way has met its goal in its annual fundraising campaign. The record-breaking total of $3,416,481 – announced Sunday at a Guelph Storm game at the  Sleeman Centre, where they know all about goals – slightly exceeds the United Way’s $3.4-million goal for this year’s three-month campaign. And it’s four per cent more than was raised in the 2012 campaign.
Local residents should be proud of backing so well an organization that supports more than 85 social service programs at more than 50 agencies. “Thousands of people will be impacted by the money we can now invest in the community,” said campaign chair Jim Jarrell. The community’s generosity, exhibited yet again, reflects well on the people who make up the Royal City.
