Four months into its major fundraising campaign, the United Way is creeping up to its $6-million goal.

So far, the United Way supporters have helped push the campaign total to 72 per cent of the overall goal.

Many donors come forward during this season as holiday appeals are prevalent and as they complete their charitable giving within the current tax year.

“As the holiday season fills the streets and homes of Greater Victoria, we are encouraging anyone who is thinking about making a charitable gift to please consider giving the gift of community through United Way,” said Patricia Jelinski, CEO at United Way.

Donations to United Way’s community campaign are accepted at workplaces, United Way’s office at 1144 Fort Street, via phone 250-385-6708 or online at uwgv.ca.
