Employees of Prospera Credit Union raised almost $82,000 for the United Way during this year’s workplace campaign.

The campaign ended on Nov. 25, and the company exceeded its goal of 50 per cent participation at its 16 branches and six commercial centres throughout B.C., including Abbotsford.

Prospera matched all employee contributions.

Employees have been coordinating workplace campaigns for more than six years, raising more than $500,000.

Prospera CEO Bruce Howell sits on the board of the United Way of the Fraser Valley, and senior vice president of human resources Heather Johnson is a member of the campaign cabinet.

The United Way supports the programs and service of more than 100 agencies.

In the Fraser Valley, the top three priorities are: poverty reduction; accessible, affordable housing; and the success of all children up to six years of age.
