City employees raise a record-breaking $79,500 for United Way

Guelph, On, November 27, 2014 – City of Guelph employees raised $79,500 for the 2014 United Way Campaign, surpassing the City’s $65,000 fundraising goal and setting a new donation record.

The City’s 2014 fundraising goal was the highest amount ever set, established after the success of the 2013 campaign, which had a target of $55,000 and raised $66,000.

“Together, City of Guelph employees are providing possibility to those in our community,” says Sean Finlay, the 2014 campaign manager. “We are making a difference in the lives of people in Guelph, Wellington and Dufferin counties.”

A volunteer committee, made up of employees, runs the City of Guelph’s annual workplace campaign for the United Way. Mayor Karen Farbridge has chaired the campaign for the last four years.
