Thirty programs in Sarnia-Lambton have been approved for one-year United Way funding investments.

The agency’s volunteer board of directors approved the 2022-23 funding portfolio this month after reviewing requests from 39 community programs.

Last year’s campaign reached $1,647,000 of its 1,750,000 goal.

As a result, 18 programs are keeping their current funding, five will see a decrease, and five are losing funding.

As well, five programs will receive money for the first time.

“There was just not enough money to fund every program and service,” said Gerry Whitcombe, volunteer community investment chair. “The volunteers went through each application while reviewing past successes of the previously funded programs.”
