On Tuesday, October 18, Cambrian College made a difference in the community by raising money and awareness for the Sudbury and District United Way. Cambrian President Sylvia Barnard was among those who served up hot breakfast sausages and pancakes to students and staff. Although the “pay what you can” breakfast had a minimum donation of $2, many people were very generous, buying breakfast for dozens of students while supporting the United Way and its programs. In just two hours, the fundraising team raised $727 through breakfast sales.
In its 30-year history, the Sudbury and District United Way has raised close to $35 million, and all of which has supported local programs in the community. On September 12, the United Way kicked off its 2011 fundraising campaign, with a goal of $1.75 million. Campaign Chair Jeanne Warwick Conroy said that Cambrian College has been involved with supporting the United Way since the charity’s inception.
In 2010, the Cambrian community donated $20,000 to the Sudbury and District United Way through an employee payroll deduction option and special events. Cambrian’s Workplace Campaign Co-Chair, Kim Glibbery, said that “canvassers are on campus with pledge forms right now to ensure that Cambrian keeps the tradition of giving alive.”
