United Way campaign falls behind

The charity is $600,000 short of its goal of $6.3 million.

With just days before its campaign deadline, the United Way of Greater Victoria is falling behind its fundraising target.

The charity is $600,000 short of its goal of $6.3 million.

“Many donors in our community have responded and we are very close,” said Greg Conner, Community Campaign cabinet chair. He appealed to people or companies to contribute to donate by Jan. 25.

“The economic trends affecting our city are national, and many United Ways and other charities across the country are feeling the pinch” said CEO Linda Hughes.

“We understand people’s concern about the economic climate but we hope they will step up and invest in the future of some of our community’s most vulnerable citizens.”
