Urgent Situation for United Way of Thunder Bay Campaign
Lagging donations have resulted in an unanticipated $100,000 shortfall in the United Way of Thunder Bay campaign. Jim Madder, the 2015 Campaign Chair notes this loss will be difficult to recoup without help.
Without these crucial donations over 1,200 local people are at risk of not getting the help they so desperately need in the coming year. Imagine the frightened woman seeking support to escape a violent domestic situation, the hungry student who relies on receiving a nutritious breakfast that he can’t get at home, or the family facing tragedy and loss who will need counselling to recover and rebuild.
