United Way Fraser Valley hosts kickoff breakfast

Event takes place Thursday, Sept. 24 at Canadian Tire in Abbotsford

United Way Fraser Valley (UWFV)  invites the public to attend its free Pancake Breakfast Kick-Off on Thursday, Sept. 24.

The event runs from 7 to 8:30 a.m. at Canadian Tire, 32513 South Fraser Way, in celebration of the 2015 fundraising campaign and to announce the campaign goal.

All proceeds from the 2015 campaign will go towards helping the 28 community partners and other organizations and programs that fall under the three pillars of UWFV.

The three pillars are: helping children be all they can be, moving people from poverty to possibility, and building strong communities.

Executive director Wayne Green said one in three Fraser Valley residents use the services supported by United Way.

“Not only do we provide a safety net of services, we also invest in specific programs that are important to residents of Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley,” he said. “The projects we fund are mostly for skills development, to help people help themselves.”

Executive director Wayne Green said one in three Fraser Valley residents use the services supported by United Way.
