You showed your local love!
United Way Southern Vancouver Island is celebrating its 85th birthday this year, and looking back, we have so much to celebrate. The past couple of years came with their challenges, but every year we are reminded of how supportive and resilient our community is and how we care for one another.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, United Way supported close to 63,000 individuals on Southern Vancouver Island in building better lives. That is almost 1 in 6 people in our region being helped by a United Way initiative or funded program. From creating local campaigns like Blue Love for Mental Health to pivoting with our provincial partners to offer relief during the BC floods, this impact report is a story of yet another extraordinary year at UWSVI.
