Fanshawe College 2010 United Way Campaign
The need is still there. Many people are still coping with difficult financial conditions so demand for the services supported by United Way continues to rise.
Many special events will be taking place over the next several months and we encourage your support. As well, your canvasser will be handing out pledge forms and talking to you about the importance of United Way. Together we can help enrich the lives of the less fortunate within our community and make a lasting change in their lives.
If you are holding a special event and would like it advertised to the College community, please email Karrie Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-452-4493.
Back by popular demand, staff and students at the London Campus will officially kick-off the London Campus Campaign with a chili competition on Thursday, October 14, 2010.
Join celebrity judges Mike Callaghan (2009 and 2010 National Chili Champion); Janice Zolf ('A' News); Fanshawe President, Howard Rundle; Fanshawe Student Union President, Joe Scalia and Andrew Leckie, CEO, United Way of London & Middlesex. For $3 per student and $5 for non-students, you will have the opportunity to taste some of the best chili in the region!
We will be serving chili in the James A. Colvin Atrium (formerly 'B' cafeteria), Forwell Hall and 'H' Cafeteria from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
