Why I Love This Town – The United Way Campaign is Back

For those of you who’ve never been here, never lived here, or even just never participated in the United Way Campaign… well it’s a little difficult to describe how the folks in this town pull together to support those in need.

But trust me on this, it’s a pretty amazing process.

Last year, for the fourth year in a row, Fort McMurray was classified as “Canada’s Most Giving Community”. The goal of last year’s campaign? $5 million.

How much was raised? $5.4 million. How awesome is that?

This year, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of people will be working together to meet, and hopefully exceed, 2010’s goal of $5.678 million. A goal I am confident we can meet.

This is just one of the reasons why I love this town.
