Thanks to the hard work and dedication of employees in the TransLink family, we once again supported the annual United Way campaign, raising a big $346,444.70!
- A gift of $1.00 every day over a year provides 36 hampers of food to vulnerable pregnant women and parents of young children
- A gift of $1.80 every day over a year engages 20 children in a school-based bullying prevention program
- A gift of $3.30 every day over a year provides accessible community gardening plots to three seniors with disabilities
- A gift of $5.00 every day over a year provides a range of supports to ten unpaid seniors caregiving for a loved one, ensuring that they are not alone and isolated
United Way of the Lower Mainland invests in more than 150 agencies to deliver over 450 programs and services to help children, families and seniors in 26 communities in Metro Vancouver, the Sea to Sky corridor and the Sunshine Coast.
This contribution will go a long way in helping families and individuals in need in our community. For more information about how contributions to the United Way are helping to make a difference in the lives of so many in our community, we invite you to visit the United Way Lower Mainland website.
“I am extremely proud of the commitment that employees across the TransLink enterprise have dedicated to the campaign this year. We have been strong supporters of the United Way for over 40 years because they have the ability to address problems facing many people who live in the communities we serve.” – Cathy McLay, United Way Campaign Cabinet Transportation & Shipping Co-Chair and TransLink Chief Finance Officer and Executive Vice President, Finance and Corporate Services
“TransLink really demonstrates their commitment to support and improve their communities by supporting the United Way. Without the funds raised by organizations like TransLink, we wouldn’t be able to do the work we do helping prevent social problems like child poverty, bullying, and senior isolation across the Lower Mainland.” – Michael McKnight, President & CEO of the United Way of the Lower Mainland
