Several weeks ago, Canadian Linen reached out for United Way’s help to find out how they can get involved in a Day of Caring. We recognized this opportunity to help identify and meet the needs of those affected by this year’s wildfire devastation.
Canadian Linen volunteers dedicated personal time and donations to help prepare the families of the Ashcroft Indian Band for the long winter months looming ahead of us. The donations included 6 large boxes of warm jackets, shirts, and pants among other items. The generous team of volunteers then drove to Ashcroft, BC to personally distribute these donations to the community.
Thank you Canadian Linen for your heroism.
United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo is working tirelessly to help rebuild the communities of wildfire affected areas. From transporting donations, to being there to welcome communities home – United Way is there. Thus far, we have mobilized volunteers to clean up communities, distributed donations to families, and even helped feed orphaned cattle – all made possible thanks to donors like you. Together, we will rebuild.
With nearly 700 volunteers putting in over 3450 volunteer hours in less than three years, a lot of work, learning, and connecting is getting done at United Way Days of Caring®
The idea is simple. An organization has a project that has been sitting on the backburner like a new fence or a space painted, and a local business has a team of eager volunteers ready to get the job done. But it’s not just about the fence. It’s about building a sense of caring through volunteerism and connecting people with different skills, knowledge, and backgrounds. It’s about team-building and having the chance to learn about the programs available in our community that United Way supports.
