Thanks to the generosity of Camosun College employees and students, the College raised over $63,000 for the United Way last year.Â This yearâ€™s Camosun campaign runs from October 20 to November 17 with a goal of $65,000.
Funds raised annually by the United Way go to help agencies, programs and services address five key community priorities: Â poverty, isolation and loneliness, family stress and breakdown, violence in society and substance abuse. Â The United Way helps one out of every three people in Victoriaâ€™s Capital Regional District.
Camosun kicks-off its campaign with a number of individual fundraisers including:
