United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo would like to say a very big thank you to all of our donors in the Cariboo, we could not have the impact we do in our community without your support. Being a part of the United Way as the Community Development Associate in the Cariboo over the last year has been a wonderful experience for me. The Cariboo is a diverse community with diverse needs. This year the Community Fund invested $97,600 in existing and new partnerships that will benefit our communities. The United Way works in three focus areas (from poverty to possibility, all that kids can be and healthy people, strong communities) and this year we did address those areas in the two communities that are part of the Cariboo.
This past Friday everyone gathered at the William Lake and District Credit Union to celebrate. It was an opportunity for our community partners, Community Impact Council members and representatives from our donors to meet each other and celebrate the successes in our community. All the smiling faces the Cheque Presentation picture tell the story of the work that we do in the Cariboo community.
