Community Comes Together to Celebrate the 2022 United Way Northumberland Campaign

In Local

Community partners, donors, businesses, and government representatives gathered to celebrate the success of the 2022 United Way Northumberland Campaign at the annual Campaign Achievement Breakfast.

United Way Northumberland recognized the community’s collective achievement and announced that their 2022 Campaign raised over $900,000 for our community.

“We could not do what we do without all of you,” says Maggie Darling, Acting Executive Director, United Way Northumberland. “Our success is the result of you, our committed donors, volunteers, and staff, who are advocates, community leaders and ambassadors of United Way.

Thank you for continuing to support United Way.”

At the morning breakfast celebrations, United Way also announced their 2023-2024 Community Partners and invited each one to share more about the impact United Way is making in our

Meaghan Macdonald, Executive Director at Habitat for Humanity Northumberland, also presented to the crowd on housing in Northumberland County and the recent United Way grant that was received to map the housing continuum locally and identify the need for affordable and attainable housing.

Looking ahead, United Way Northumberland is excited to continue to build strong partnerships that will create more resilient communities.

“United Way is beginning to work on a new community impact strategy to understand the changing needs locally, and how we can ensure our investments are aimed at achieving the greatest impact possible,” says Darling.

United Way would like to thank the Best Western Inn and Convention Centre for sponsoring the breakfast for the last 20 years.
