The United Way of Sarnia-Lambton has set this year’s campaign goal at $1.9 million.
That financial target is the same as in 2019, but how the money is raised will be very different this year.
The Day of Caring, the annual campaign kick-off, has been cancelled, along with many of the fundraising events the United Way relies on.
Instead, the agency will focus on employee giving and increasing direct mail and online giving programs.
“Before this pandemic and in the future, we must continue working to help vulnerable youth, families and seniors,” said campaign chair Vicky Ducharme.
“The $1,900,000 is needed to fund United Way programs at appropriate levels.”
