Big Donation has United Way saying “wow!”


The United Way has just come a lot closer to reaching it’s goal.

“United Way is excited to advise the community that we have received a generous donation and our donor will match all “new” donations received from January 1st up to March 31st 2016 or until United Way raises enough funds to support 10,000 people.” said a release issued Friday morning.

The donor is a long standing community volunteer supporter of the United Way Sault Ste. Marie and district who wishes to remain anonymous. The donor encourages everyone who has never made a donation in the past 2 years to consider doing so today. Every new donation no matter the amount will have double the impact.

As of February 9th, 2016 The annual campaign has raised funds to support 9,296 people.

“Wow!” “Thanks to the generosity of this donor, together we have the opportunity to reach our goal and as a new donor your donation will have double the impact for the community. I encourage everyone … if you have not yet donated but can … it is not too late!” James Caicco, 2015 Campaign Chair.

Donations will be accepted until March 31st 2016.
