On Saturday, November 4th, United Way partnered with members of The Kamloops Masonic Temple Association and New Life Community to provide a hot, fresh, nutritious meal to those less fortunate. Several volunteers joined us for lunch hours this past weekend to feed close to fifty individuals. This wonderful group from KMTA handed out snacks, smiles, and laughs to clients accessing the services of New Life. As we gathered for the picture to the right, clients filling the room cheered for our volunteers to show their appreciation.
United Way partners with non-profit agencies right here in our community to bring projects to life. Together, we are changing lives. A special thank you to our KMTA volunteers and donors who help build strong communities. If your team is looking to get involved this holiday season, sign up for a Day of Caring through United Way!

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.
