Defence team launches United Way campaign

CFB Esquimalt hopes to raise $725,000

The defence team at CFB Esquimalt launched its ambitious annual fundraiser in support of the United Way of Greater Victoria last Thursday.

The goal of this year’s three-month endeavour, part of  the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, is to generate $725,000.

Last year, the defence community raised more than $750,000, surpassing its $700,100 goal.

The success made the team the No. 1 contributor in support of United Way community partners and programs in Greater Victoria.
