Trent University's 2021/22 annual United Way Campaign is officially underway, aiming to raise $150,000 to support the needs of the local community
The United Way campaign focuses on issues like homelessness, food insecurity, domestic violence, and mental health challenges. Social change is made in local communities through the United Way’s support for 20 partner agencies in both Peterborough and Durham.
“Every year, the Trent University United Way workplace campaign is a key way in which we support community organizations and services in need. This year we are striving to raise an ambitious $150,000,” notes Dr. Leo Groarke, president and vice-chancellor of Trent University. “We are asking everyone in our Peterborough and Durham communities to help us reach this goal.”
For more than 50 years, Trent has supported the communities it serves, and Trent’s leadership is more important now than ever. The University has been Peterborough’s top workplace campaign for the past four years, and there is much still to be done. This year, the United Way has focused on response, recovery, and resilience in the wake of COVID-19.
The Trent University United Way Campaign Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank Linda Smith, outgoing retiree co-chair, for her immense commitment to the campaign. During Linda’s tenure as co-chair, the Trent United Way committee has worked with faculty, staff and retirees to raise more than $2 million to the United Way. Linda has been an integral part of modernizing the campaign while rallying the Trent community. Trent appreciates Linda's dedication, investment, and passion for creating change.
Beginning October 7, Trent employees and retirees are encouraged to give to the workplace campaign to support programs that create a circle of care in our community. Giving has never been easier with the new United Way portal, United Way @ Work, customized for the Trent campaign.
