100 Faces of United Way

100 faces coming this summer

This summer, we will launch a new campaign called 100 FACES OF UNITED WAY. Each day, for 100 days, we will feature United Way people on our social media sites.  We want to have representation from donors, volunteers, agencies, workplace campaigns, and most importantly, people of all ages who have benefited from a United Way funded agency.

Is this you? Or, do you know someone whose life has been positively impacted by the United Way or one of our agencies?

Did you take your kids to The HUB when they were little?  Have you attended the Multicultural Expo or one of the amazing programs offered by the Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo?  Do you have a relative that enjoys the social activities offered at the Golden Years Society?  Have you been in a situation where you, or someone close to you, needed to call the 24-hour crisis line operated by Some Other Solutions?  These are only a few of the programs that are available thanks in part to the generosity of thousands of people who contribute to the United Way.

Our 30 agencies do so much in our region and it is likely they have impacted you or someone close to you.

We are looking for faces and stories, people young and old who value the United Way and would consider helping us with this exciting awareness campaign.

Each person who volunteers to be a part of the 100 FACES OF UNITED WAY campaign will be asked to come to a short 20 minute photo session at The Redpoll Centre over the next few months.  We are excited to be working with a talented photographer/videographer named Brandon Cooper of RealPics.  He did a brilliant job with the recent Top 50 Under 50 issue of Your McMurray Magazine.
