York’s United Way Campaign is looking for volunteers

York University’s 2010 United Way Campaign is revving up for another stellar year and they are looking for volunteers to help make this campaign a success.

Money raised helps support the many programs and services provided by United Way agencies in helping build stronger communities.

Volunteers are particularly needed during United Way month in November to help canvass for donations or assist with special events, and play an integral role in making the University’s United Way fundraising campaign reach its target.

"We welcome returning canvassers/volunteers but also hope to expand our team of volunteer canvassers," said Yvette Munro, chair of York University’s United Way Employee Campaign. "If you have a bit of time to spare and are interested in learning about the United Way, we invite you to join our canvasser team. All canvassers will be invited to a lunch-hour mini-training session."

To volunteer, contact Munro at ext. 77529 or ymunro@yorku.ca no later than Wednesday, Oct. 13.
